Plane reported 'control problems'
by UPI

CALGARY, Alberta - Air Canada passengers said they were told the computers were knocked out before the pilot manually landed the plane at Calgary International Airport Thursday.

Ten people were taken to Calgary hospitals for injuries received during the emergency landing, Calgary Herald reported. All but one had been discharged by Thursday evening.

The flight experienced "control problems" at an altitude of 35,000 feet, said John Cottreau, a spokesman for the Transportation Safety Board.

"It went up and then sideways," one passenger told the newspaper. "She flew up to the ceiling and right down."

Calgary Airport Authority said the flight was en route from Victoria, British Columbia, to Toronto and was diverted to Calgary. Air Canada said a preliminary flight list indicated 83 passengers and five crew members were aboard.
