Emergency landing in Quebec City

Posted By: CJAD · 1/4/2013 6:49:00 PM

A fire forced the emergency evacuation of an Air Canada Dash 8 aircraft in the area of Jean Lesage airport this afternoon in Quebec City.

The twin-engine turboprop propeller was arriving from Gaspe on its way to Montreal with a stop in the provincial capital.

But on approach to Quebec, a fire was reported on board.

The aircraft landed away from the airport, its passengers and crew rushed out.

The fire was quickly extinguished, no one was injured.

    Air Canada does not have any Dash 8's, this news report is slightly defaming. Perhaps correct the article?
    Jazz has Dash 8' that Air Canada contracts, therefore it would have been a Jazz Dash 8 with the fire.

    I'm pretty sure acpa has done more defaming to the company then this little article.
    Just glad everyone is ok. Good to see you boys care about your passengers.
