GGN7468, a Beech 1900 enroute from Moncton (CYQM) to Halifax (CYHZ) was on final to Runway (RWY) 23 when the pilot indicated a possible gear issue; GGN7468 was cleared for an overshoot.

UPDATE; When the crew selected the gear down, the "R" in RH did not illuminate. Due to the low visibility, the crew elected to go-around to trouble shoot. After a brief discussion, it was determined that the gear was down and locked, but the "R" light bulb had burned out. The crew swapped the bulb and all lights illuminated. No maintenance required.

Supplemental information provided by Air Georgian Limited (2003/12/03): The departure was not from Intersection Echo, rather, the full runway length was used. A rejected take-off did not occur.
