Incident at Vicinity Saskatchewan-North Dakota Border


1997-11-03: CDN 901 was enroute from Vancouver to Toronto and north of Minot, ND when the crew advised ATC that an oxygen line in the cockpit that supplies the crew had broken. The crew made a rapid descent from FL 330 to 10,000 feet as a precaution and elected to divert to Winnipeg. CDN 901 landed without further incident at Winnipeg at 2335Z. UPDATE The oxygen leak occurred at the jumpseat location, which reduced the crew's system pressure to 730 psi, so the crew turned off the oxygen switch and requested a descent to 10,000 feet. The a/c diverted to Winnipeg and landed without further incident. The leak was traced to a break in a flex supply line, which was capped, and the a/c put back in service on a MEL.
