The Air Canada aircraft (A319) (operating as ACA184) was an IFR flight which departed the Kelowna Airport (CYLW) for the Toronto (LBPIA) Airport (CYYZ). At 0043Z, approximately 2NM on final for runway 24R at CYYZ, ACA184 reported landing gear problems and pulled up and went around. ACA184 proceeded on an extended downwind, extended the landing gear by alternate means and requested AFF equipment on standby. At 0102Z, ACA184 landed on runway 24R and, coming to a stop approximately half way down the rwy, was unable to exit runway 24R. ACA184 was secured and towed off the runway at 0118Z. Spilled hydraulic fluid was found on runway 24R. The hydraulic fluid was cleaned up and runway 24R was returned to service at 0131Z. Ops. impact -- The incident occurred at the busiest arrival period of the day. Runway 24L was put into use for arrivals only. Some arrival delays occurred while runway 24L was put into service. Runway 24L was unsuitable for departures due to the configuration of taxiway D7. Departure delays were incurred because all departures were routed to runway 23 for approximately 30 minutes.
Supplemental information from T.S.B. Initial Notification (#A02O0431): The Air Canada Airbus A319-114 (operating as ACA184) was conducting an approach to runway 24R at Toronto LBPIA (CYYZ). On final approach, the flight crew received a ""Manual Gear Extension"" warning on the aircraft's Electronic Centralized Aircraft Monitoring (ECAM) system. The Captain decided to conduct a missed approach and asked ATC for an extended downwind leg in order to allow time to extent the landing gear manually. The subsequent approach and landing were uneventful; however, the aircraft was not able to taxi off the runway. The nose wheel steering was inoperative due to the manual landing gear extension. Company maintenance personnel replaced the nose landing gear proximity sensor. The landing gear was swung and the aircraft returned to service without further incident.
