2005-02-04: CAV 7539, a Saab 340 with 14 people on board, was en route from Winnipeg to Churchill and south of Norway House when the crew reported a cracked windshield. They requested and received a clearance for a diversion to Thompson MB. No emergency declared, one departure at Thompson delayed by 10 minutes as a result. The company later advised that the crack was to a 'non-pressure bearing element' of the windshield.
