A large Airbus A340-600 plane made an unscheduled landing in Churchill on Sunday afternoon after a passenger got sick.
The plane was en route from Munich, Germany, to Los Angeles, when it was redirected to Churchill. A source in the northern town said the passenger was then transfered to a Winnipeg hospital by air ambulance for treatment.
The plane departed from Churchill around 6:50 p.m. Sunday and made the rest of the trip to Los Angeles.
The Airbus A340-600 is the longest-fuselage jetliner built by Airbus, according to the company website, and can seat up to 419 people.
