ComoxConnection Flight 802 (July 20, 2014) had just been unloaded and was getting refueled at Comox Airport when the aircraft burst into flames and exploded.  No injuries.  Quinton Matthews claims that the aircraft had a scheduled maintainence check on July 17, 2014.  Due to no longer having the aircraft, the Abbotsford-Comox route had to be cut-down to 3 services a day, instead of 5.  

ComoxConnection Flight 8099 (September 3, 2015) was cruising at 8800 feet when one of the 8 passengers on the Cessna 208 Caravan, a young man, opened the door and jumped out. Passengers reported that he seemed to become angry and jumped out. The man was identified as Cory Black who was depressed. The 2-month old Cessna 208 Caravan was not damaged. The plane was flying from Abbotsford to Comox and once the door was shut, the plane continued to Comox.
