CANADIAN PILOT COLLAPSES MIDFLIGHT PLANE HAS TO DIVERT
WestJet flight 1590 landed safely at Calgary International Airport at 1:12 p.m. Monday, just less than about an hour after taking off, according to public flight logs. The Boeing 737 MAX 8 plane was flying over southeastern Alberta when it turned back toward Calgary.
A problem was noticed by passenger when flight attendants brought a first-aid kit and a defibrillator into the cockpit. “Then they made the call for if there is a doctor, nurse or EMT on the plane and as luck would have it, one doctor came forward and two nurses,” White said. He said a pilot on board in the passenger area also made his way to the cockpit.
Gee Whiz I wonder what caused that???. A jabbed pilot? We don’t know but with all that is happened in the past two years you have to wonder. The latest airline pilot magazine ALPA shows 1 pilot died in 2019, 6 died in 2020 and 111 died in the first 9 months of 2021. Hmmmmm
