A propane company had a series of explosions at 4AM this morning, sending debris everywhere. The propane company is located a parking lots length from the main manufacturing building at Downsview Airport which houses the Q400 assembly line.
Next to it, is the Global Express, and Global 5000 manufacturing building. It has been raining all weekend here, so hopefully there were no airplanes left out overnight. It is not unusual to have 2 or 3 Q400’s sitting outside overnight.
The entire area is currently shut down by Police, and there was a reported ‘200’ plus large propane tanks that have exploded.
