Accident at PORTAGE LA PRAIRIE / SOUTHPORT MB (CYPG)

COLT28 conducted a PFL (practice forced landing) to runway 13R planning a full stop. The controller then heard some-one calling, "Pull up, pull up". Suspected a BE90 waiting at the post. The aircraft overshot and flew to the edge of the zone to assess the situation. Another aircraft formatted on COLT28 and observed the right main tire was missing. After discussion the pilot set up for a long final for runway 08 with full flaps. Power was cut on short final and the aircraft landed and skidded to a stop on the south side of runway 08 about half way down. Command post activated. It appears the aircraft landed very hard on his PFL.
UPDATE : TSB occurrence number and class added. A12C0030: The Allied Wings Flight Training Services Grob G120A, C-FPFM, was completing a practice forced landing and experienced a hard landing at CYPG, Portage la Prairie. The right main wheel departed the aircraft. The crew elected to overshoot and returned to land on a different runway. On touchdown the left main landing gear partially collapsed. The aircraft departed the runway to the right and came to rest beside the runway in the grass. The crew was uninjured. The aircraft sustained damage to both main landing gear assemblies.

Incident at ABBOTSFORD BC (CYXX)

NavCan Report: A BE90 was on a VFR flight from Springbank to Pitt Meadows when he contacted Vancouver ACC advising the right engine was shut down due lack of oil pressure. The pilot requested flight following and weather at closest airports as a precaution. It was then determined the pilot was not IFR qualified, was above the overcast and the only person on board. RCC dispatched a DH5 to assist if required. Merrit was the closest airport where cloud breaking could be accomplished and arrangements were made with ground crew personnel for cell phone communications in the event that comm was lost with the ACC. After exploring several options the pilot elected to continue to Abbotsford where it was confirmed as clear. The aircraft landed safely at 2219z with emergency vehicles on standby.
Vancouver ATC alerted RCC that a Beech 1900, N17SA had lost an engine and declared an emergency. Pilot was only VFR qualified and was above cloud layers. Buffalo tasked to help escort pilot. Aircraft landed safely at Abbotsford.
TSB report engine oil was lost due to the filler cap not being properly secured.

Incident at Vicinity of Confederation Bridge

C-FYPU, Piper PA28, enroute Summerside (CYSU) to Waterville (CCW3) VFR, lost communication and transponder return at 1900Z. Prime target observed consistent with track of C-FYPU. TGO998, BE90, St. Anthony (CYAY) to Moncton (CYQM), was vectored to the vicinity of the prime target. TGO998 cancelled IFR and descended when the PA28 was in sight. The PA28 did not seem to be in any difficulty. Greenwood MTCU was advised and contacted Waterville airport. C-FYPU landed at Waterville at 2010Z. Aircraft had a complete electrical failure. TSB Case Closed
TSB Update: A05A0153: While transiting VFR from Summerside to Waterville, the pilot of C-FYPU, a PA-28-140, was advised that Moncton ACC was not receiving his transponder. He then noticed that his radio transmissions were not being heard. Shortly afterwards the aircraft's electrical system failed. ATC diverted a Transport Canada Beech 90 to investigate. As C-FYPU was not in distress, it continued en route. Moncton ACC advised Greenwood and Waterville of the inbound aircraft. C-FYPU made an uneventful NORDO landing at Waterville. The electrical failure was caused by a broken field wire on the alternator.
Maintenance & Manufacturing Update: The pilot advised that maintenance staff found that the field wire on the alternator had separated allowing the battery to discharge and cause a complete electrical failure.
