The Mississauga News
MISSISSAUGA, Canada — Mississauga based ORNGE is again in hot water after an ORNGE air ambulance made an emergency landing Friday night because one of its doors opened and a window blew out in midflight, which could have been "catastrophic."
The chopper took off from the Billy Bishop island airport after 6 p.m. on Friday en route to pick up a patient west of Toronto. Shortly after the helicopter was airborne, one of the doors opened, forcing the helicopter's two pilots to search for a spot to land.
