A Korean Air 777 passenger jet en route from Vancouver to Seoul turned around and landed at CFB Comox, reportedly under fighter escort, almost three hours after it took off, officials say.
Alisa Gloag, speaking for Vancouver International Airport, confirmed that Flight 82 with 149 passengers aboard had landed safely at the military base at 5:22 p.m.
“They took off and then turned around and came back,” she said.
CTV reported that the aircraft landed under escort by a Canadian CF-18, but Ms. Gloag said she could not confirm the fighter role.
CTV reported, as of about 6:10 p.m., that no one had departed the aircraft, which was on the runway at CFB Comox.
The network said there were reports of a threat on board.
“The aircraft is safely on the ground. We’re just processing the situation,” said a major at the military base, who declined to provide his name pending the further release of information by media relations.
