An Air Canada flight made an emergency landing at the Halifax Stanfield International airport on Saturday after reporting a landing gear issue.
Air Canada flight 1219 was travelling from Orlando to Halifax when it experienced mechanical problems.
Halifax Fire and Emergency Services were called to the airport at around 3:30 p.m. after crew members on the flight reported problems with the plane’s landing gear.
“They had a wheel that wasn’t coming down, and I guess just before they landed, it did come down,” the CBC reported division commander Greg Hebb as saying.
In a statement, Air Canada said the plane got two flat tires during the landing. No injuries were reported.
