A Westjet Encore de Havilland Dash 8-400, registration C-FWEW performing flight WS-3394 from Edmonton,AB to Calgary,AB (Canada), was climbing out of Edmonton's runway 12 when the right hand engine (PW150A) failed prompting the crew to return to Edmonton for a safe landing on runway 12 about 35 minutes after departure.

The aircraft is still on the ground in Edmonton about 56 hours after landing back.

On Feb 1st 2024 the Canadian TSB reported the aircraft was climbing through 10,000 feet when the crew heard a bang, observed a right DC generator light and abnormal torque indications for the right hand engine (PW150A). The crew worked the related checklists, shut the engine down and landed safely back to Edmonton. Company maintenance determined that the right hand engine's 2nd stage low pressure compressor had failed.
