Air Canada Flight 624 crash lands in Halifax; 23 sent to hospital | Globalnews.ca

HALIFAX – The chief operating officer of Air Canada says the weather was safe for landing when a plane flying into Halifax early Sunday morning had a hard landing and skidded off the runway.

Klaus Goersch confirmed at a brief press conference at the Halifax Stanfield International Airport on Sunday afternoon that the incident, which occurred during a snowstorm, could technically be described as a crash because the plane did not reach its gate. He said he had never heard of a similar accident occurring previously with Air Canada.

That’s not a hard landing. That’s a crash. A hard landing calls for an inspection to make sure nothing broke on the plane. This one is a hull-loss.

  1. The still pushing this “hard landing” Bullshit, just about everywhere

    OK
    If you land 1100 feet short, smash THROUGH the approach lights, go UPHILL, leave your entire landing gear behind, and one engine, and half the stab, and bits of both wings……. and have to get off on an escape slide… Thats a Fucking Crash
