A memory from Terry Baker -
I worked with Air Canada at Dorval in the computer building overlooking the Bombardier factory to the east.
In the 1980's, Bombardier were doing a demonstration with the CL-215 water bomber. Flying to the east, very low over the runway, it dropped its water load in front of the assembled gathering standing on the roof of the Bombardier building.
At the end of the runway, the aircraft banked to the left. I said to my supervisor, Andy McCready, who was also following the trial demonstration, "That guy is too low and going to crash!" Behold it did just that when the left wing struck the ground and the aircraft settled down. In minutes, two people exited the aircraft and ran away from the immediate scene to safety.
Within minutes, the fire and safety equipment went hurtling down the runway until they suddenly halted far from the accident site. The reason - route 13 was a depressed highway (sic) built at the end of the runways.
There was no way to cross and get to the accident scene without returning to the base and re-routing themselves to the base road. There was no fire or fatalities - except, I would think, considerable embarrassment.
(Anyone recall this incident? – eds)
