Replacement El Al Plane Lands in Canada
Replacement El Al Plane Finally Takes Off
The Story (in brief):
Full article can be read at YWN:
An El Al flight from JFK to Israel was forced to make an emergency landing on Sunday morning. El Al flight ELY008 landed at an airport belonging to the Canadian Army in Goose Bay, Canada. The flight had departed JFK airport in New York at 1:00AM on Sunday morning. Multiple passengers told YWN that the plane was shaking terribly when the pilot called “mayday” and made the landing on the small air strip. “We heard loud noises coming from the engines”, one passenger told YWN.
When informed that many passengers were saying Tehillim, the pilot whispered that he keeps the Tehillim that his grandmother gave in the cockpit with him at all times! Mi K’amcha Yisrael!

MK Meir Porush is reportedly on the flight, as well as many people flying to the Agudah Yarchei Kallah in Yerushalayim.
Of Special Note:
On the plane is the Aron of Mrs. Mira (Hager) Cohen Wein A”H – who was on the way to her Kevura in Har Hamenuchos.
