    From the article

    A United Express plane carrying 44 passengers has skidded off the runway at the Ottawa International Airport.
    .....

    He says fire crews are on the scene working to contain a fuel spill from the damaged undercarriage of the Embraer 145.

    I thought this was a dupe posting of last years story at first. Wow. Hopefully just a dark coincidence.

    Note to YOW ground staff: please stop greasing the runway before UA flights land!

    On board was Pete Purvis, a member of Celtic rock band Gaelic Storm. If anyone knows who they are or cares. :) Been a fan for over a decade, though he hasn't been a member nearly that long.

    Also note the name of the spokesman. Hockey star turned fire department spokesman?

    Actually it is a slightly different spelling, and the name isn't uncommon in the east of Canada. There's also an actor by a similar name up north.
