HALIFAX – The chief operating officer of Air Canada says the weather was safe for landing when a plane flying into Halifax early Sunday morning had a hard landing and skidded off the runway.
Klaus Goersch confirmed at a brief press conference at the Halifax Stanfield International Airport on Sunday afternoon that the incident, which occurred during a snowstorm, could technically be described as a crash because the plane did not reach its gate. He said he had never heard of a similar accident occurring previously with Air Canada.
