An Air Canada flight headed for Shanghai was forced to make an emergency landing shortly after taking off from Trudeau airport on Saturday.
Passengers onboard flight #AC17 reported hearing unusual sounds as the plane pulled away from the tarmac.
A warning light came on in the cockpit of the Boeing 787. The crew, following emergency procedures, shut down the engine, dumped fuel and contacted emergency teams on the ground.
