Investigators On Site, Looking For Answers
Canadian military investigators are on the scene at Yellowknife
in Alberta, trying to figure out why the pilot of a CF-18 was
forced to eject as he was landing.
Canadian Press reports Capt. Joseph Edward Mullins, 34, was
taken to hospital with minor injuries after he lost control of the
craft during landing.
Eleven inspectors arrived at Yellowknife Sunday, their flight
delayed because the incident forced the airports runways to shut
"We look at the whole thing," Major Jim Armour, senior
investigator in charge of flight safety, said in a telephone
interview with CP. "We'll look at everything from the way the
airplane is, what kind of damage is on it. We'll look at the runway
marks. We'll look at weather."
Armour acknowledged the runway was wet and may have been slick
as a result.
