I will laugh at this no matter how many times it is used.  I promise.

Headline is hilarious. +1

I've never heard that joke before. No, seriously.

Loose seal?

Seriously though, those planes are really solid, fly in them all the time.

No one aboard, including the aircraft's 72 passengers, was injured.

Interesting phrasing, it sort of suggests the passengers safety is an afterthought for most people.

Meh, it happens all the time when you swap-out your summer & winter tires (& forget to tighten them nuts). A rookie mistake.

You silly Canadians.  So, when do they break out the tire studs and snow chains for the aircraft?

I thought Canadian aircraft were all fitted with skis year-round.

"The airport's emergency vehicles raced to the small propeller plane, but the pilots did not lose control of the aircraft during the incident."

Wheres the "small propeller plane"?? Behind that bigass turboprop?
 
2013-01-21 10:24:11 AM
In all honesty ... it was a fine time.

Certainly wouldn't want to lose the wheel during take-off or landing!

Better AFTER the landing than BEFORE or DURING the landing.

Tire studs & snow chains are illegal up here. I mounted semi-automatic assault rifles on the car bumper airplane nose axle to shoot-up the road ice but those are apparently illegal too!
Stupid nanny state!

That would make it tough the 3 days out of the year when there isn't snow on the ground.  Do they just cancel all the flights those days?

I'm sure that Red Green would have an appropriate solution for the problem.

Yeah well, if your Air Canada flight loses a wheel landing at Pearson Airport I hear you're supposed to get a free case of Elsinore. Along with some back bacon

Or that Canadian airports are used for snowmobile races year-round. They're all so good with their snow machines that they've moved the races to the airports to make it more challenging.

Chains ruin the roads. They are not allowed in Ontario.

Tire studs are restricted to northern areas and winter months.
