PHOTOS: Air Canada Flight 624 Experiences a Runway Excursion While Landing at CYHZ
Early Sunday morning, at approximately 12:40AM ADT, Air Canada flight 624, an A320 enroute to Halifax from Toronto, was involved in an accident while landing. The aircraft was registered as C-FTJP and is 23 years old.
While approaching Halifax, the A320 apparently clipped a power cable of some type sending it off the runway. The power went out in the airport, most likely due to AC624 striking the power cable.
Despite immense damage to the airframe, amazingly there were no serious injuries and passengers were brought by busses to the terminal. Damage to the aircraft includes the separation of an engine and heavy damage to one of the wings.
At the time of the occurrence, a blizzard was occurring in Halifax. It is unclear wether this was a factor.
The airline is currently investigating the accident. The TSB of Canada also deployed a team to the airport.
