A Boeing 787 temporarily made Yellowknife it’s landing spot.
The large Norwegian passenger plane had to make a detour to YK’s airport. It had previously been on route to LAX in California when, while over Nunavut, the pilot made the decision to land. The detour was due to a medical emergency on board.
CJCD has reached out for updates on the emergency.
The 787 has since taken off for LAX. The YK airport has tweeted out a way to follow the flight.
You can track the @Fly_Norwegian flight that was diverted to #YZF this morning – now airborne for #LAX. // Pour tous les mordus d’aviation, vous pouvez suivre le vol de l’avion qui est atterri plus tôt aujourd’hui a YZF et qui en direction de #LAX. https://t.co/ubCl3ZrV0b
