An Air France plane on fire at Pearson Airport. Will let you know more after i find out...
Update live on CNN now.
thanx for the heads up
kinda stunned to see this. dont know what to say really
Sad to see something like this, but even sader because you KNOW it only made [big] news because they thought terrorism first.
Looks like everyone including pilots survived! Thank God
Very good to see everyone made it out ok. With such nasty sounding weather I'm surprised they weren't re-routed elsewhere.
the sky was black.
unbelievable that everyone made it out alive.
a pat on the back for the rescue personnel
A big pat on the back to the flight crew (Pilot, Co-Pilot, Nav and such), they landed the damn thing in the first place.
CNN conversation with Eyewitness and view of crash site
CNN conversation with Passenger
one thing for sure is that there damm lucky that they didnt land on the 401, at 3:50 on the 401 it would have been worse than losing everyone on the plane its self. i would have to comend the pilot on that one.
Thank God everyone is safe.
Was watching it on TV. Great to hear that everyone came out safely.
saw it on tv as well. so was it due to weather conditions or pilots fault??
Weather, sounds like a case of the plane perhaps hydroplaning or just slidding in the intense rain.
I have also heard that a crash happened on the same runway, number 24L, back in June 1978. I don't know the exact details, but the plane had skidded off the same runway and onto the same ravine. :s
That's exactly what the ravine is for. To prevent that scenario.
Cool everybody got out OK.
I was in Toronto when it happened, my sister, friend and cousin were at the Backstreet Boy concert and my dad and I were cruising through electronic stores.
