Three of four passengers leave hospital after Air Canada flight’s rough landing

On Thursday night, an Air Canada Q400 turboprop aircraft made a rough emergency landing in Edmonton; of the four passengers sent to hospital, three have been released so far. The fourth remains in hospital being observed. Flight 8481 departed from Calgary and had 71 passengers and four crew members on board. According to reports, a tire blew on takeoff but crosswinds made it impossible for the plane to return to Calgary so it carried on to Edmonton. When it arrived, witnesses saw sparks flying from the belly of the plane as it slid down the runway. Emergency vehicles were standing by and the runway was closed to other planes. Investigators from the Transportation Safety Board are looking into the incident.
