Accident at Gods River, Manitoba

The aircraft was on a routine scheduled flight from Winnipeg to Gods Lake Narrows to Gods River with a return flight to Winnipeg. The aircraft was landing on runway 27 at Gods River. Shortly after touch down the crew reported that the right main gear collapsed which caused the aircraft to slew to the right through 180 degrees and come to rest north of runway 27. The aircraft was substantially damaged, however, there were no injuries to the crew of 2 and their 5 passengers. TSB are on the scene, an update to follow. UPDATE: The right main landing gear touched down approximately 345 feet before reaching the threshold of runway 27. The wheels of the right landing gear travelled about 20 feet and struck a snow ridge which had been created as snow removal equipment turned in the under run area. The ridge was about 2 feet high and consisted of frozen snow. The right landing gear drag links failed and the right gear moved rearward pivoting at the trunnion. The left gear wheels touched down about 326 feet ahead of the runway threshold. The aircraft slid off the right side of the runway and sustained substantial damage. The right main landing gear punctured the fuel tank in the right wing when the gear collapsed. The two failed drag links have been sent to the TSB lab at Ottawa for analysis.
