Incident at THUNDER BAY ON (CYQT)

Summary

1996-03-07: Canadian Airlines International flight 927, a Boeing 737-217 on a scheduled passenger flight from Toronto, Ontario, to Winnipeg, Manitoba, was 30 nautical miles east of Thunder Bay, Ontario, when passengers and cabin crew noticed a thumping noise in the area of the forward cargo bay. The crew decided to divert the flight to Thunder Bay and landed there uneventfully, with ERS standing by. At the request of ERS, the crew positioned the aircraft on the button of runway 12, and deplaned the passengers there. Company personnel examined the cargo bay, but found nothing unusual. The passengers were re-boarded, and after refuelling, the flight continued on to its destination. Company maintenance personnel inspected the aircraft in Winnipeg, and suspect that the noise may have been caused by the movement of luggage due to turbulence. The aircraft was returned to service and the problem did not recur.
