Accident at TORONTO / BILLY BISHOP TORONTO CITY AIRPORT ON (CYTZ)

Summary

2008-12-17: UPDATE Supplemental information received from T.S.B. Final Report (Synopsis): The Swearingen SA26-AT was engaged as an air ambulance transporting two (2) patients from Earlton to Toronto, Ontario. Immediately after touchdown on runway 26 at Toronto (Island) Airport, the left main landing gear collapsed and the aircraft settled onto its left wing. All occupants of the aircraft were safely evacuated. The Board determined that the left main landing gear lower torque link failed on touchdown, which allowed the left wheel assembly to rotate, causing a side load on the left main gear leg. This side load caused the gear leg to fail at the upper hinge points and the gear collapsed. The lower torque link was weakened by fatigue cracking and failed in overload. The cause of the fatigue cracking was not determined.
