An Air Canada jet was forced to make an emergency landing yesterday at Winnipeg’s Richardson International Airport after suffering a hydraulic problem.
‘The aircraft, an Airbus A319, was en route from Toronto to Calgary when the pilot reported a hydraulic problem and diverted to Winnipeg just after noon Central time.’
Flight 119 landed safely but had some blown tires on landing. Unconfirmed reports say they had trouble with the flaps as a result and made a higher than normal rate landing.
Fire crews were on hand immediately after landing and passengers were taken off the aircraft on the runway.
There were no injuries reported.
