NORTH BAY, Ont. - There were no injuries early today when an Air Canada Jazz airplane slid off the runway at Jack Garland Airport in North Bay, Ont.
Police say the Dash-8 aircraft, arriving on a flight from London, Ont., had 15 passengers and three crew on board.
Sgt. Andre Berube says the plane slid about 150 metres into the snow at the end of the runway.
Emergency personnel helped the passengers off the plane once a path was cleared through the deep snow.
Berube say the tarmac was extremely icy and it was very foggy at the time of the incident just after midnight.
Police say the flight crew should be commended for bringing the aircraft to a safe stop.
