Two jetliners collided at a Toronto airport Friday, setting a wing on fire and sending dozens of terrified passengers fleeing into the cold.
A Boeing 737 landed at Pearson International Airport shortly after sundown, ferrying 168 WestJet passengers from Cancun, Mexico. Outside, on an evening of record-setting cold in Toronto, workers were towing an empty Sunwing plane across the airfield.
Neither of the two airlines or Swissport, whose worker was towing the empty plane, have explained how it managed to hit the WestJet flight.
