A crowd gathers to try to figure out how this could have happened... meanwhile a large tractor prepares to lower the nose gear. New terminal construction is seen in the background.

What about "CALM" Air? They better find a new name like "STRESS" air in that moment. :)

I was there for that. they crew up north loaded the rear cargo to full. When it got to CYWG, the passengers started to get off up front and then this happened. nobody was hurt. I remember watching it taxi in and being like "wow, that thing is really tail heavy"

I used to be an FA on a Saab 340, and ppl just like tu push the cargo hold to the limit! One time after touch down the nose didn't hit pavement until the very end of the runway!

My dad use to fly for Calm Air back in like the 80s. Hated them so much he'd never let me fly on them, haha.
