Air Canada Flight 624 Crash Landed (Picture)

During heavy snow and poor visibility at 00:43 ADT on March 29, 2015, the Airbus A320-211 operating the route made a "very hard landing" about 200 metres (660 ft) before the threshold on runway 05, hitting approach lights and a power line that cut power to the airport, leaving the airport without power for about 80 minutes. The aircraft then climbed an embankment up to the runway level, skidded on its belly and stopped 300 metres (980 ft) past the threshold. The aircraft is reported to be extensively damaged. Twenty-three passengers were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries (and 22 were released later). -- wiki
