A Canadair CL-415 aircraft operated by the Government of Quebec, was operating flight Q239 under flight rules from Roberval (CYRJ), QC to a forest fire located approximately 45 nautical miles (83 km) away northwest of CYRJ, with two pilots on board.
During a scooping manoeuvre on a lake, the aircraft's hull collided with a shoal, causing damage to it. The crew ceased firefighting operations and returned to CYRJ where the aircraft landed safely.
Once the damage was assessed, a flight permit was issued to return the aircraft to the main operations base for repair.
