"A different CC-150 Polaris (tail number 02) has traveled to London to bring [Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's] delegation back to Canada at the conclusion of the NATO leaders meeting today," says a media statement.

"In the meantime, the RCAF has other aircraft that can be used for transport and are confident it can meet the needs of the government while the aircraft is being repaired."

The nearly 30-year-old passenger aircraft, which is specially outfitted with a private cabin, was being towed "by contracted maintenance personnel" at the military's largest airbase in Trenton, Ont., when it "suffered significant structural damage to the nose and right engine cowling," said air force spokesman Lt.-Col Steve Neta.

The aircraft rolled into the back wall of a hangar.

"The incident remains under investigation to determine causes and identify preventive measures," Neta added.

'Trudeau's new plane to replace damaged 'Can Force One' could be fast-tracked for replacement' .
Government officials are considering speeding up plans to replace the aircraft the prime minister uses to fly around the world, after a week in which several problems hit the more than 30-year-old jets. The prime minister’s plane is part of a fleet of five Airbus 310-300s and it is expected to cost from $1 billion to nearly $5 billion to replace all the aging planes. Of the five planes only one is typically used for the prime minister, with two others used mostly for troop transportation. Two of the planes have been converted into aerial refueling tankers.
