An aircraft from the Air Canada fleet lost a wheel shortly after takeoff from Montreal-Trudeau International Airport on Friday – after which the machine had to turn back without further ado.

How CNN writes that the plane was heading to Bagotville when the incident occurred. Nobody got hurt.
One of the 49 passengers on board managed to make a video of the incident. It shows how the wheel suddenly detaches from the aircraft’s left main landing gear. He posts the video with the dry remark: “At the moment I am sitting on an airplane that has just lost a wheel … The year 2020 is starting well.”
The pilots were finally able to turn the machine over and land safely.
