(thanks avh)

Here's the audio.  how do you install a fuel cap backwards?

A Jazz Canadair CRJ-900, registration C-GJAZ performing flight QK-8997 from Phoenix,AZ (USA) to Vancouver,BC (Canada) with 62 people on board, was climbing out of Phoenix's runway 25R when tower advised the crew they appeared to have a fuel leak. The crew decided to return to Phoenix for a safe landing on runway 26 about 45 minutes after departure.

The Canadian TSB reported: "Maintenance found fuel cap on top right hand wight installed backward."

The aircraft departed again about 90 minutes after landing back and reached Vancouver with a delay of about 2 hours.
