AC DASH 8 LOSES WHEEL

Recommended Posts

Air Canada Dash 8-300 lost a wheel with sparks at Montreal (video)

Sparks are seen on the video of the right inboard axial of the wheel and then the wheel rolls off at high speed as the airplane lifted off.

Air Canada (Jazz Aviation) Dash 8-300 lost a wheel on takeoff at Montreal-Trudeau with 49 passengers and a crew of 3 on the way to northern airport Saguenay on Friday afternoon. Plane burnt fuel to reduce weight and returned to Montreal.

French passenger with France accent says "It fell off, it fell off".

See good video of the axial sparking in News in French

Hah!  Happens all the time - only difference is that on most airplanes you can't see it because it's under the wing.  I know a guy in Toronto who has a side business picking all the wheels that bounce to a stop on Airport Road and returning them to the proper airline.

From the same place they got the axial!

How does he know what airline owns the wheel?  They don’t stamp “If found, please return to _______” on them.

He just watches the aircraft fly over and counts the wheels.  You know, from there at the Wendy's on Airport Road.
