  • Tronderfly(?) diverts to YYT

    TFL330 CUN-AMS made an emergency diversion to CYYT around 4am today
    (Sunday Dec 9). It was reporting smoke in the cockpit. I have never heard of Tronderfly. The aircraft was this one

    It left a couple of hours later after being checked over by an Air Canada mechanic.

    We also had Virgin Atlantic flight 74 MCO-MAN divert in with a sick passenger.
    The aircraft was 747-400 "Ladybird", a repeat visitor to YYT.

    A beautiful aircraft. Always great to see a 747.

    Another interesting night at the "Lifeboat of the North Atlantic"

    Interesting. Is there a hospital on site at the airport, or somewhere really close?

      We have an excellent university hospital less than 10 minutes away from the airport.
      We also have firefighter/paramedics at the airport. But I guess all airports have those (I hope).
      The passenger on Virgin was suspected to be having a heart attack. While it was on the ground, a second passenger developed chest pains. I wonder if being on a diverted aircraft was stressful, bringing on the chest pain? Just flying is stressful for some.

        Well that would most likely explain it. Thanks for the info.

          Ahhhh, that's why it turned up at MAN this afternoon, somewhat late.
