Recommended Posts

One person remains in hospital after an arriving Air Canada Express plane made contact with a Menzies fuel truck at Pearson International Airport.

The collision took place just after 1:30 a.m. Friday.

Debra Williams, the manager of corporate communications for Jazz Aviation, which operated the flight, said three crew members and two passengers were taken to hospital for assessment.

Damage to the plane will be assessed, she said.

After the collision, airport emergency services responded and passengers and crew were evacuated and moved to a terminal, according to Ryan White, a spokesperson for the Greater Toronto Airports Authority.

Passengers have since been allowed to leave.

The aircraft and vehicle have been removed and the scene is being returned to normal operations, White said.

There was no impact on the airport’s operations, he said.

On Wednesday, emergency response crews put out a fire in the left brakes of a Jazz Aviation flight departing from Pearson, Williams said.

The aircraft was halted during taxi when the crew experienced an issue with the brakes. Passengers deplaned and there were no injuries.

Taxiing to the gate..One source says the aircraft is pretty much written off. Fuel Truck driver has been charged.

Originally aircraft heading to Sudbury but came back due to bad wx at Sudbury..... Capt/FO, F/A and two pax treated for injuries and all released.

To most people, any surface an airplane maneuvers on is a "runway", but it would be nice if the media would at least try to be slightly more educated on such stuff.

Based on Peel police comments the thread title should read “Fuel Truck Collides with Jazz Aircraft”

Lots of overnight rain and soaked ramp may have helped in not having this end in a huge fire ball. Crunching metal and bent prop? Incredible. 

Credit AAS for the nice shot of a U/S AOA.

The AOA vane looks fine to me.  Let’s tag it “serviceable” and put it in the supply system. Those things cost money you know. 😁

You could very well be right. It’s just not pointed into wind anymore. Good for another 100,000 hours.

I hope that wasn't one of machines they recently did the life extension (120K hrs) on....

Murphy’s Law is probably applicable here.

If this is C-FJXZ, it's 28 years old.

What does the age of the airplane have to do with anything?  

I can’t determine from the photos or video whether this is a DH8-301 or a -311.  Based on the one photo, the MLG could be a -311.  These models are scheduled for the ELP.  The -301’s aren’t in the program due to their different MLG design.

Does anyone know what the tail number or reg is?

Fin 326. Yes it is a 311. Not yet due for the 80,000 km check. I am guessing it will live on. That is a mere flesh wound on the mighty Dash.

Again credit AAS for these photos, but did the Dash8 spin around after the impact and then come to a stop resting against the back of the truck?

Looking closely at the design of the fuel truck, it appears to have a ‘built in’ blind spot for anything on its right hand side.

What is has to do with is what the insurance company assesses as the value. Remove the engines and avionics and what do you think the hull is worth?

With the pressure vessel ruptured the repair bill will be significant.
