– an Air Canada A330 apparently lost a wheel at takeoff – it was only discovered while being at the gate in London- Heathrow – talk about redundancy!
“Preliminary information indicates that a wheel separated from the aircraft while taxiing down the runway before takeoff Sunday night in Montreal and came to rest beside the runway,” Air Canada said in a written statement.
“As the landing gear is comprised of eight wheels in addition the two nose wheels, this had no impact on the safe operation of the flight. Flight AC864 … landed normally in London and taxied to the gate. Passengers on the returning flight were re-booked on other flights later while the aircraft was repaired,” Air Canada said.
