WINDOW OR AISLE? Air Canada propeller slices through cabin window
EDMONTON, Canada — A passenger aboard an Air Canada flight making an emergency landing at Edmonton International Airport due to a blown tire said a propeller came off and lodged in her window, injuring her.
The photo of the propeller, posted on Facebook by a friend of passenger Christina Kurylo, took off on social media.
Below is a link to the CNN video from CTV:
She is quoted by CTV as saying, “Once we landed, we were driving for a bit. It was really, really bumping and I looked back and the tires were all shredded up and flapping. All of a sudden something came crashing through my window and I got hit in the head. … I feel so lucky and blessed to have walked away with what I walked away with.”
The aircraft was a Bombardier Q-400.
