RCAF says mechanical problems 'rare' after Trudeau's plane forced to land 30 minutes after taking off
from National Post
The Royal Canadian Air Force says a mechanical issue aboard a plane carrying the prime minister is a rare occurrence. An RCAF Airbus carrying Justin Trudeau turned around and returned to Ottawa Saturday night about half an hour after taking off. RCAF spokesman Capt. Wright Eruebi says an indicator light came on showing the plane's flaps were stuck. Eruebi says because the plane was still near Ottawa, the pilot decided to return and maintenance personnel quickly resolved the issue.
