Passengers were compelled to evacuate by means of emergency slides in the bone chilling frosty on Friday night after two planes crashed on the ground at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport. No wounds have been accounted for.
WestJet said an inbound from Cancun, Mexico with 168 passengers and a team of six was stationary and holding up to go to an entryway when it was struck by a Sunwing air ship moving once again from a door.
Video film from the Westjet plane shows flames on the wing of the Sunwing plane. Passengers are heard shouting.
Representative Lauren Stewart said the WestJet passengers were evacuated from the air ship by means of emergency slides and all were safely in the terminal and clearing traditions not long after the impact.
“Because of the position of the flying machine on the laneway, WestJet visitors required clearing by means of emergency slide. Emergency groups were available and reacted instantly,” Westjet said in an announcement.
Sunwing said there were no group individuals or passengers on board its air ship. It was being towed by the aircraft’s ground taking care of specialist co-op at the season of the occurrence.
The Greater Toronto Airports Authority said fire groups smothered a little fire on the Sunwing airplane and some flight operations were influenced by the episode
Canada’s Transportation Safety Board said it is examining.
