A CanJet flight from Montreal (CAN) in to Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (Fla) yesterday had a wheel assembly partially come apart after landing and burst a tire.
“I said to my wife immediately, ‘Is there wind’,” said passenger George Panagolpolis. “I thought he was going to land and scrape the wing, but thankfully, he didn’t and leveled it off at the last minute and just braked really hard.”
“I thought that he was coming in a little fast,” said Michelle Masse, “and I felt pushed forward and I was surprised that it was not a usual landing.”
The 188 passengers on board had to be taken off the plane just off the runway and shuttled to the terminal by bus. No one was injured.
