9E CRJ Emergency Landing At TVC

Tue Apr 17, 2012 4:52 pm

LiveATC Twitter feed reporting a Pinnacle CRJ landing in TVC with smoke in the cockpit. FlightAware shows 9E 4290 originally YYZ-MSP, diverting to TVC. Anyone have more details?

They must've wanted to get the plane down fast. Pinnacle crews tend to be shy about landing at TVC after a nasty incident years ago. If the winds aren't just right, they don't go. Hope all is well. Thank goodness it came froma preclearance city, or would've been a lot of international fun.

Thats not really true.

There was 2 issues in the past relating to TVC but it involved wintertime operations.

1 was a NW DC-9 back in about 2001 / 2002. The DC-9 has a runway overrun in icy conditions due to snow qualls that came over the field, typical of the lake effect snow in the region. There was another near incident that led to NW pulling mainline out of TVC for the following winter, primarily since the tower was closing at 10pm, before the last inbound arrival from DTW for the night which was giving outdated weather and airfield conditions.

The other was a 9E CRJ in about April 2007. That also happened in snow quall / lake effect snow conditions.

That being said, there is no snow up there today so it is just an ordinary chilly April day.

Nevermind that 9E is currently operating all 4 of the daily CRJs from DTW currently.

Looks like it was a passenger with portable oxygen - the battery powering the unit caught fire. No damage to the plane, which is scheduled to leave again for MSP.
