A Canadian passenger plane landed safely after it was hit by a drone in the first case of its kind in the country, a cabinet minister said Sunday.

The Canadian incident happened last Thursday when a drone collided with a domestic Skyjet plane approaching Jean-Lesage International Airport in Quebec City, Transport Minister Marc Garneau said in a statement.

The aircraft, carrying six passengers and two crew, was struck on its right wing at an altitude of about 450 meters about 500 yards and roughly two miles from the airport, according to Le Journal de Quebec newspaper. Read more at YAHOO News.
