No one was hurt Sunday when the main landing gear of a Jazz airliner collapsed after it landed at Toronto's Pearson airport from Moncton, N.B., an airline official said.

Spokeswoman Manon Stuart said that after the CRJ-100 regional jet aircraft landed, the main landing gear buckled while the plane was moving from the active runway onto a taxiway.

The 37 passengers and three crew members aboard Flight AC8911 were not injured, Stuart said.

She said everyone was released following medical examination at the airport, and some passengers continued on to connecting flights.

This is the first time an incident like this has occurred involving this aircraft, a 50-seat Canadian regional jet, Stuart said. The incident is under investigation.

Jazz is a subsidiary of ACE Aviation.
