A short video shared to Twitter, which you can see below, shows the terrifying moment a passenger witnessed one of the wheels of his Air Canada plane fall completely off the plane during take off. The Air Canada Express flight was headed to Saguenay from Montreal's Trudeau airport, where this is an ongoing strike.\nThe strike is being held by employees of Swissport, members of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAMAW) union, who are responsible for refuelling at both Montreal airports, along with machinists, mechanics, dispatchers, and maintenance staff.\nThere are no reports to indicate that the striking workers are in any way related to this incident, though we have reached out to Air Canada for a statement about the incident.\nThe Air Canada Express flight was being operated by Jazz Aviation LP, according to this CBC report, who explained that the pilots were able to keep control of the aircraft and execute a safe landing, even while missing one of six wheels part of landing gear equipment.\nHere's the video, which was shared on January 3, 2020, to Twitter with the following caption:\n"Ok, well, I'm currently on a plane that has just lost a wheel... 2020 is off to a good start."\nBon bah là j’suis actuellement dans un avion qui vient de perdre une roue...2020 commence plutôt bien 🤔 pic.twitter.com/eZhbOJqIQr— Tom (@caf_tom) January 3, 2020\nIn the video, you can see sparks or flames flying from the centre of the wheel.\nYou can also faintly hear someone say, "c'est bon," or "it's fine," right before the wheel actually falls off.\nREAD ALSO: 3 Montreal Pedestrians Were Struck By Large Vehicles This Weekend, Only 6 Days Into 2020\nImmediately after that, and far more clearly, you can hear someone, potentially the videographer, saying, "elle est tombée, elle est tombée!"\nIn English, "it fell, it fell!"\nEXTENDED VIDEO Air Canada Jazz #AC8684 to Saguenay lost a wheel as it departed Montreal yesterday. Sparks were seen prior to separation. The flight returned safely to Montreal. Video shows departure & wheel falling off, passengers being calm and a smooth landing. pic.twitter.com/o9ey0baikJ— Tom Podolec Aviation (@TomPodolec) January 4, 2020\nThe video above shows the safe landing of the flight back at the Montreal airport, after the aircraft circled around the Montreal skies for a short period, in order to "consume fuel before returning to Montreal," CBC explains.\nTHAT TIRE came off a Dash 8-300, Not an Airbus!SOMEBODY didn't mount it right, and is going to get his wrist slapped!🤣The Dash is quite safe to land on one wheel; there is a lot of redundancy built into the aircraft. 😊— Melvin D. Goddard (@GoddardMel) January 5, 2020\nThe plane generally has six paired wheels as part of the landing gear.\nLuckily the plane was able to safely land even without its sixth wheel, and none of the passengers on board suffered any injury.\nIn a statement to MTL Blog Jazz Aviation, which operates the flights on behalf of Air Canada Express, explained that "the experienced pilots maintained complete control of the aircraft."\n"Our pilots are well trained to deal with such situations and responded according to our standard operating procedures. After burning some fuel, the aircraft returned to Montreal and landed safely. There were no injuries."\n"Emergency vehicles were called as a precautionary measure — the safety of our passengers and crew is our top priority. Our maintenance personnel in Montreal are conducting a thorough inspection of the aircraft to determine the cause and proceed with the necessary repairs."
