Plane makes emergency landing in Regina

An Air Canada Boeing 737 had to make an emergency landing at Regina airport Wednesday morning.

The plane, with 41 passengers on board, landed at 11:00 local time after the crew detected strong vibrations in one engine.

Emergency evacuation was not required and passengers left through the regular exits.

One passenger said the atmosphere on board was so calm that other passengers continued to read.

The plane was en route from Winnipeg to Calgary.
