Revisit a remarkable moment when our Widebody Engine Change shelter proved its mettle in the unforgiving Arctic conditions of Iqaluit, North Eastern Canada.

When Crisis Strikes: Imagine a Boeing 777 aircraft, bearing the iconic Swiss Air livery, racing against the clock in a dire situation. Engine failure mid-flight forced the Zurich to Los Angeles route to make an emergency landing at Iqaluit airport. Onboard were over 200 passengers, their safety hanging in the balance.

No Hangar, No Problem: What makes this tale even more extraordinary is that the mechanics accomplished this feat without the luxury of a nearby hangar. Our cutting-edge IglooMX® Tents stepped up to the challenge, allowing skilled technicians to carry out their tasks effectively.
