| ||Incident: Air Canada E190 at Toronto on Jul 12th 2009, slat failure|
An Air Canada Embraer ERJ-190, registration C-FHIQ performing flight AC-1127 from Toronto,ON to Saskatoon,SK (Canada) with 97 people on board, was climbing through 2500 feet after takeoff from runway 23, when the crew reported flaps problems and requested to level off at 5000 feet indicating, that a return to Toronto may be necessary. The crew held close to the airport and returned to land safely on runway 23. While emergency services were checking the airplane out, Westjet flight WS-180, a Boeing 737-800 arriving from Edmonton, had to go around. The Air Canada Embraer taxied off the runway 10 minutes after touch down.
The Canadian TSB reported on Jul 17th, that the airplane experienced a slat failure after departure prompting the crew to declare emergency and return to Toronto. Maintenance replaced the right hand wing slat harness and returned the airplane to service.
