  • EVAS Flight 7804 (operated for Air Canada Express) was a scheduled flight from Goose Bay Airport to Gander International Airport, Newfoundland. On April 20, 2016, the Beechcraft 1900 landed during blizzard conditions. During roll out the aircraft contacted a snow bank on the runway which caused the nose gear to collapse. Out of the 14 occupants, 3 were taken to the hospital for minor injuries. The investigation is complete and a report has been published by the Transportation Safety Board of Canada.[9]
