Military Plane Makes Emergency Landing at YWG

A Canadian Forces aircraft made an emergency landing at Winnipeg’s James Richardson International Airport Friday afternoon.

A problem with the plane’s hydraulic system made it difficult to steer, but the landing gear was successfully deployed.

The plane — an Airbus referred to as “Polaris” (above) — came in shortly after 12 p.m.

Passengers included 56 military personnel on their way to Vancouver from Trenton, Ontario to help with security at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games.
