November 29, 2006

Incident at THUNDER BAY ON (CYQT)

UPDATE from TSB Occurrence Summary A06C0191: The Bombardier CL-600-2D15, C-GNJZ operated by Jazz Air as flight JZA8827, was cruising enroute when the crew observed the #1 hydraulic system fluid depleting and at 20 per cent of capacity. The flight diverted first to Toronto and then to London without further incident. Company maintenance replaced the #1 hydraulic pump, and the aircraft was returned to service.
UPDATE Follow-up information received from Maintenance & manufacturing [2006/11/30]: A Civil Aviation Safety Inspector (CASI) spoke with the operator's Quality Assurance staff about this occurrence. The CASI was advised that the aircraft involved was registered as C-GNJZ. The flight crew called company Maintenance staff while overhead Thunder Bay to advise that the aircraft's #1 hydraulic system was depleting (down to 20% of capacity) and the aircraft would be grounded in Regina. Due to the extremely cold temperatures in Regina and a lack of available hangar space, the decision was made to turn the aircraft back to Toronto (LBPIA). Also involved in this decision was the Toronto (LBPIA) weather (which was hovering at limits for the flight to get in). Flight Dispatch gave the flight crew alternate of London International Airport (CYXU) via Toronto (LBPIA) (CYYZ) in case they couldn't land at Toronto (LBPIA). This turned out to be the case and the flight diverted to London International Airport. The passengers were then transported by ground back to Toronto (LBPIA) as the Toronto (LBPIA) weather was not conducive to running a 705 aircraft to pick them up, coupled with the fact that London International Airport did not have security available at the airport. London Maintenance staff repaired the aircraft by replacing the #1 hydraulic pump and servicing the hydraulic system. A ground run was carried out and the aircraft was returned to service. No damage reported. A SDR was filed. The event was captured in the aircraft's Journey Log (Part 2) as event #542189.
Air Canada JAZZ flight JZA8827, Bombardier CRJ9 enroute from Toronto Lester B. Pearson Intl (CYYZ) to Regina (CYQR) was proceeding westbound at FL360 when the pilot elected to return to Toronto due mechanical problems. JZA8827 was cleared as requested at FL370. Details co-ordinated with Toronto ACC. NOC advised.

August 14, 2006

Incident at en-route from Ottawa to Winnipeg

The (Air Canada) Jazz Air Limited Partnership Bombardier CL-600-2D15 (705) Regional Jet aircraft (C-GNJZ, operating as JZA8471) was on a scheduled IFR flight from Ottawa (M-CIA) (CYOW) to Winnipeg International Airport (CYWG). The aircraft departed runway 25 at 1042Z. At 1120Z, while north of the Killaloe VOR, the flight crew elected to divert back to Ottawa (M-CIA) and, when handed off to the Tower Controller, declared an emergency due to smoke in the cockpit. The aircraft landed at 1126Z and taxied short of the gate. The passengers were evacuated after the engine were shut down. Three (3) people were injured during the evacuation. Ops. impact -- unknown.
UPDATE from TSB Occurrence Summary A06O0212: The Air Canada Jazz Canadair CL-600-2D15 Regional Jet (Flight #JZA8471, registration C-GNJZ) aircraft flight crew received a right bleed duct warning while at FL250 and elected to return to Ottawa. Soon after, they received a right and left bleed duct warning. As per the checklist, the crew turned off the bleeds and began a descent but the the cabin altitude rose above 10,000 feet (A100) and the oxygen masks deployed. At the same time, the crew noted a burning odour. On final approach the flight attendant advised that the burning odour was still present so the flight crew declared an emergency. ARFF was on standby as the aircraft landed. The aircraft taxied in and came to a stop approximately 50 feet from the gate. It was reported that the passengers were anxious to get off the aircraft. The crew shutdown the engines and the captain requested the flight attendants conduct a rapid deplanement which was announced to the passengers. The passengers started exiting the aircraft through the emergency exits and one passenger was injured when another passenger fell on her. Note original report said three passengers hurt but TSB reports one.

July 4, 2006

Incident at OTTAWA / MACDONALD-CARTIER INTL ON (CYOW) (Aerodrome, runway or taxiway shutdown, Aerodrome - operations)

The (Air Canada) Jazz Air Limited Partnership Bombardier CL-600-2B19 (RJ 100) Regional Jet aircraft (operating as JZA8472) was completing a scheduled IFR flight from Winnipeg International Airport (CYWG) to Ottawa (M-CIA) (CYOW). The flight crew reported a bird strike occurred during the landing on runway 25 at 1915Z. The runway was closed for an inspection and the remains of one (1) sparrow were recovered. Airline operations staff advised. Ops. impact -- none.
UPDATE Follow-up information received from Maintenance & Manufacturing [2006/07/12]: A Civil Aviation Safety Inspector (CASI) contacted the operator's Quality Assurance staff for more information on this occurrence. The CASI was advised that the aircraft involved was actually a Bombardier CL-600-2D15 (705) Regional Jet with a registration of C-GNJZ. This occurrence was captured on Journey Log page #452717. "On roll-out, the crew reported a small bird strike." Line maintenance staff inspected the aircraft IAW AMM 05-51-25 with no damage found. The aircraft was released to service. RCMS has been reviewed and no similar incident to date has been noted.

October 4, 2006

Incident at CALGARY INTL AB (CYYC) (Aerodrome, runway or taxiway shutdown)

UPDATE TSB reported that the Air Canada Jazz flight 8334, a CL-600-2D15 (RJ 705), registration C-GNJZ, was on a scheduled flight from Calgary to Winnipeg. The flight departed Calgary and reported that there had been a vibration during takeoff. The runway was inspected and pieces of tire, composite material and a piece of metal were found on the runway. The crew was advised that tire material and debris, consistent with the aircraft type, had been found. The flight continued to Winnipeg where a fly-by confirmed that the No-4 main landing gear tire appeared to have lost tread. The flight maintained a holding pattern to burn off fuel then landed successfully with Emergency services requested and standing by. The aircraft remained on the runway for assessment prior to being cleared to taxi to the gate. There were no injuries to passengers or crew. Company maintenance personnel confirmed that tread material had departed from the No-4 main wheel tire. The core of the tire remained pressurized and on the wheel. There was FOD damage to portions of the aircraft flaps and the landing gear door. Interim repairs were completed and the aircraft was ferried to Toronto.
UPDATE Maintenance and Manufacturing reported that Wilkerson Tire, a retreading company in the U.S., videos all their tires during the process and Jazz has requested the company go back and review this particular tire. Wilkerson wants the tire back to properly review the video, but Jazz has sent it to NRC in Ottawa. Jazz has had a couple of the Wilkerson retreads let go. The last one occurred in YYC and at that time, the flap and engine nacelle were damaged from the tire debris. It sounds like this time the flap may need to be replaced. In both incidents, the tire remained inflated.
JZA 8334, a Canadair RJ 700, departed Calgary at 1834z for Winnipeg and the flight crew reported a vibration on take-off. A piece of metal and a piece of tire were discovered on the runway and identified as coming from a CRJ. This information was relayed to the crew at 1930z and they elected to proceed to Winnipeg and burned off fuel in the area. The crew made a low pass to verify the gear was down and then made an approach and landed safely on Runway 36 at 2118z. Runway 36 was closed until further notice. YWG Tower treated the event as a major standby. 70 SOB's 9,500 lbs fuel. TSB will contact the company.
