Cockpit issue forces CAL midflight turnaround
(Trinidad Guardian) After one hour of flying from Toronto’s Pearson International Airport (YYZ) to Portof-Spain, a Caribbean Airlines (CAL) flight suddenly began experiencing technical difficulties and was forced to return to Canada.
Flight BW601 landed a short while ago at Pearson International and passengers on board were said to be very traumatised. Some of them began praying loudly after the plane was forced to turn around and return to its starting point, the T&T Guardian was told.
“It was a horrible landing, very rough and fast,” one passenger who did not want to be identified said from Canada a short while ago.
The passenger added that when the pilot announced that the flight had to turn around, everyone initially thought it was a joke.
