Air Canada announced in an email on the 25th local time that an aircraft of the company’s Boeing 737-8 Max had an engine accident on the way from Arizona to Montreal, Canada, on December 22, and the three crew members had to drive the plane to turn.
Return to Tucson, Arizona to land.
Shortly after take-off, the pilot received a “engine command” for the hydraulic low pressure of the left engine, according to which it was determined that the plane had a “PAN PAN emergency”, so he “decided to close an engine” and turned to Tucson to complete normal.
The incident occurred three days ago on December 22, but Air Canada has not announced the news.
The first to announce the news was a Belgian aviation professional website, and Reuters later asked Boeing to comment on the matter.
In response to Reuters, a Boeing spokesman conveyed information about the incident to Air Canada, but did not provide any other comments.
Boeing’s 737 Max was forced to ground in March 2019 due to an air crash on Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302, and the United States just lifted its 20-month flight ban on the 737 MAX last month.
