InfoBeat - Air Canada jetliner lands after "haze" fills cabin

CALGARY, Alberta, April 2 (Reuters) - An Air Canada jet with 121 passengers on board was forced to turn around and land shortly after it took off from Calgary, Alberta, on Monday when a "haze" filled the cabin, medical officials said. Air Canada said it was unable to confirm that the haze on the Airbus A320 aircraft bound for Montreal was smoke, although Calgary Emergency Medical Service assessed 19 of the passengers who complained of dizziness, nausea and tightness in their throats. Three were transported to hospital by ambulance. "The aircraft is being looked at by maintenance (personnel) and the incident is under investigation. That's all I can tell you right now," Air Canada spokeswoman Angela Mah said. Two of the three passengers transported to hospital were treated for difficulty breathing and released. A third remains under medical supervision. ((Jeffrey Jones, Reuters Calgary bureau (403) 531-1624, (Reuters 08:03 PM ET 04/02/2001)
