US Airways Express CRJ 7 Emerg Evac YYC

Wed Jul 11, 2007 10:32 pm

Just sitting at work, got a great view of a US Airways Express CRJ7 sitting on C4 (exit off of rwy 34), several fire trucks around it, with the pax evacuated and standing about 400 feet away.

Does anybody know whats going on?

Why would a US Airways Express CR7 be anywhere near YYC?

Would it perhaps be a CR9 (used by USAir Express - Mesa) on the YYC-PHX route?

Perhaps this one?

USAirways.com shows it still operating, albeit very delayed (3+ hours.)

Indeed, it is a CRJ9, I just havent had my coffee yet. It has been towed somewhere on the ramp now.

I would say that is it, Flight aware isnt showing that it was ever airborne, so im thinking it rejected its takeoff on 34 and exited on C4, and Evac'ed there.

Good, I was scratching my head thinking why in the hell is one of our birds way over there.
