View Full Version : Plane Off Runway at Toronto

08-02-2005, 04:09 PM
An Air France A343 has skidded off the runway and burst into flames in bad weather at Toronto Pearson Airport. Pilot and co-pilot have escaped, 291 souls on board in unknown condition.

Can anyone hear anything on the live ATC feed?


It's been silent since I've started listening since 5 pm.

I wouldn't worry, Iberia, all indications seem to suggest weather as the primary cause.

Locking this thread as the one in the General section has more posts.
