Plane Makes Emergency Landing in Winnipeg

An Air Canada flight carrying 152 passengers was forced to make an emergency landing at Winnipeg’s James Richardson International Airport on Wednesday.

The aircraft was travelling from Toronto to Vancouver when the pilot noticed a crack in the plane’s windshield.

Flight 169 landed at 2:21 p.m. — less than 15 minutes after the airport was notified that the flight needed to make an emergency landing.

Passengers were told to expect about a 7-hour delay while another aircraft from Toronto was flown to Winnipeg. photo/Marc Evans
