Bombardier Flights Grounded
Bombardier is asking airlines around the world to ground some of its airplanes after two were involved in emergency landings in Europe this week. The company is recommending approximately 60 of its Q400 turboprop planes be kept out of the air until they can be inspected. Those selected were chosen for grounding because they have taken off and landed more than 10,000 times, the company said. About 160 Q400 turboprops are in use worldwide.
If you have a flight booked on a Bombardier plane, you may want to check the type and make alternate plans.
