CRJ Main Gear Collapses Following Landing At Toronto

Passengers, Crew Examined By Medical Personnel As A Precaution

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 Airport.

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 reports.

"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.
