Incident at MONTRÉAL / PIERRE ELLIOTT TRUDEAU INTL QC (CYUL)

A Tunisair Airbus A330-200 (TAR202) from Tunis, Tunisia (DTTA) to Montreal/Pierre Elliott Trudeau Intl, QC (CYUL) rejected its approach on Runway 24L because the preceding departure had lost a wheel during takeoff. It landed at 1908Z.

Incident at MONTRÉAL / PIERRE ELLIOTT TRUDEAU INTL QC (CYUL)

A Jazz de Havilland DHC-8-311 (C-FSOU/JZA8684) from Montreal/Trudeau, QC (CYUL) to Bagotville, QC (CYBG) lost a wheel from its left interior back gear at takeoff from Runway 24L. JZA8684 burned off fuel and declared an emergency at 1933Z. JZA8684 landed without incident at 2014Z.
UPDATE from Airworthiness: A Civil Aviation Safety Inspector (CASI) looked into this occurrence. During initial climb, the flight crew was informed by the air traffic controller (ATC) and the flight attendant (FA) that the aircraft (C-FSOU) lost the left inboard (#2) main wheel assembly. The decision was taken to execute an air turn back after burning some fuel. An emergency was declared and the aircraft landed without further incident. The aircraft stopped on the taxiway, where passengers were deplaned and bused to the terminal. Troubleshooting determined the main wheel bearings failed, allowing the assembly to separate from the gear axle on rotation. As the axle sustained some damage, the landing gear assembly along with the brake units and wheel assemblies were replaced before returning the aircraft to service. The main wheel assembly has been recovered. On January 4, 2020, another aircraft (C-GABO) suffered a No. 3 main wheel bearing failure while taxiing to the gate. Due to the failures on these aircraft, a fleet campaign was commenced on the DHC classic fleet (All DHC-8-102/301/311) to inspect and report on the condition of the main wheel bearings. A Safety Management System (SMS) investigation is currently underway. Further updates on the results of the campaign and SMS investigation will be made in Continuing Airworthiness Web Information System (CAWIS) as part of the follow-up on the two Service Difficulty Reports (SDRs) submitted by the operator.
