VICTORIA — Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau’s election plane sustained some damage in Victoria after a media bus drove under one of its wings Wednesday night.

The plane had just landed in the British Columbia capital after transporting Trudeau, his team and several journalists travelling with the campaign across the country for Day 1 of the federal election race.

A bus was parked close to the plane to transport the journalists from the tarmac.

As it departed, it drove under the wing of the plane, making a loud scraping sound as the top of the bus slowly dragged under the wing.

The bottom of the wing had visible damage, but it is not yet known how this will affect Trudeau’s travel plans.

Trudeau has a busy flight schedule planned for Thursday with stops in Kamloops, B.C., and Edmonton.
