Passengers, Crew Examined By Medical Personnel As A
Here's another reason
why you should listen to the flight attendant, and keep your
seatbelt securely fastened while the plane is moving. No one was
injured, but everyone was startled Sunday when the landing gear of
an Air Canada Jazz regional jet collapsed shortly after the CRJ-100
touched down at Toronto's Lester B. Pearson International
A local television station reported the aircraft had just
landed, and was turning onto a taxiway adjacent to runway 6 when
the jet's main landing gear collapsed, according to news
"After landing and while moving from the active runway onto the
taxiway, the main landing gear buckled," Manon Stuart, Manager
Corporate Communications with Air Canada Jazz, said in an email to
CanWest News Service. The jet's nosegear remained extended.
None of the 37 passengers and three flight crew members were
injured in the incident, which briefly closed the runway and
taxiway to other flights. There were no reports of a
harder-than-normal landing, or other preexisting factors.
Everyone onboard was examined by medical personnel at the
airport, as a precaution.
"There were no injuries and all passengers and crew were
released following examination from the GTAA (Greater Toronto
Airports Authority) medical staff," Stuart said.
The Canadian Transportation Safety Board is investigating.
