Skyquest Diverts to Regina

Wednesday, December 22, 2010
By George Hatcher

What: Skywest/United Airlines Bombardier Regional Jet en route from Saskatoon to Denver
Where: Regina International Airport
When: DECEMBER 22, 2010
Why: While en route over Saskatchewan, the crew noticed fumes in the cockpit.

The crew deployed oxygen masks, and then made a safe landing after diverting to Regina where passengers disembarked.

The plane was aired out; and it appears that the problem originated from deicing fluid which had been ingested into the aircraft’s auxiliary power unit.

Passengers reboarded and the flight continued on to Denver.
