    A video recorded and tweeted by a passenger claiming to be on board of the airplane heading from the city of Montreal to Saguenay, Quebec, in Canada reveals the alarming event.

    A tweeted video revealed a wheel from a plane belonging to Air Canada Express detaching and falling off during takeoff from the Montréal–Trudeau International Airport. Flames were seen coming out a wheel on the left side of the plane during the departure, before it fell off and away from the landing gear superstructure.

    The incident was recorded by a passenger aboard the flight. The passenger tweeted the footage with the caption: “Well, now I'm on an airplane that just lost a wheel... 2020 starts pretty well.”

    The plane reportedly quickly turned back and landed safely in Montreal with no injuries reported.
