The Famous Gimli Glider

Hello and Welcome to Nothing Ever Happens in Canada, but we know this is simply not true! I'm Canadian Girl, thanks for joining me today on our next adventure. Grab your aviation hats as we board Air Canada flight 143 back in July of 1983. The flight was supposed to go from Montreal Quebec to Edmonton Alberta but suddenly had to make an emergency landing just outside of Gimli Manitoba at an old RCAF base, at least that's where they thought they were landing. Join me now as we look at this unbelievable tale of the famous Gimli Glider and it's Heroic Crew. Website - see the show notes and more!
