Air Canada jet lands safely in Toronto after losing a wheel

An Air Canada jet made a safe landing Tuesday in Toronto after losing one of its main landing wheels, apparently during takeoff from New York.

The airline said the Airbus A319 jet was carrying 120 passengers and five crew members. There were no injuries when the pilots made an emergency landing at Toronto Pearson International Airport, according to Air Canada.

The plane “experienced an issue with one of its six tyres on take-off,” Air Canada said in a statement. The flight took off from New York’s LaGuardia airport. The airline said it had no further details pending an inspection.

Thankful to be on the ground safe and sound! My thanks to the captain and crew for their excellent work and communications. Well done https://t.co/1VCFwadFnX pic.twitter.com/meVTB8bDDB
