Posted by on Sunday, July 31, 2016

An Air Canada flight heading from Toronto to Calgary was forced to make an emergency landing after significant hail damage to the plane's windshield.

Of the 149 passengers on board, there were no injuries and the plane landed without incident in Lethbridge on Saturday.

Passengers said that they were told that there was a storm but they were not told the extent of the damage.

Pilots had to call a last-minute mayday and pull the plane up as it was about to land.
