An Air Canada Boeing 737-8 MAX suffered an engine issue during a positioning flight on December 22nd. The aircraft was stored in the Arizona desert since February this year.
The Boeing 737 MAX, with registration C-FSNQ, was performing flight AC-2358 from Pinal Airpark Marana to Montreal with 3 crew members on board.
At 39,000 feet, the crew reported a left-hand engine hydraulic low-pressure indication. Shortly thereafter, after receiving a fuel imbalance indication, the crew decided to shut down the left engine.
After that, the crew declared PAN PAN and diverted to Tucson International Airport. The aircraft made a safe landing some 80 minutes after departure.
