An Air Canada Boeing 737MAX-8 declared emergency on ferry flight after suffering engine issues.
An Air Canada Boeing 737MAX was on a ferry flight AC2358 from long-term storage at Pinal Airpark in Marana, Arizona to Quebec on Tuesday, 22 Dec.
Shortly after takeoff, low pressure in the left engine and subsequent fuel imbalance from the left wing’s tank forced the crew to shut down the left engine and diverted the flight to Tucson, Arizona.
The three-member crew of the empty plane initially decided to continue the flight to Montreal, but made the emergency landing at Tuscon, one hour and 20 minutes after departure.
The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration lifted the 20 month grounding of 737MAX and permitted to return to the skies in November.
