Incident at Halifax, N.S.

Summary

1996-01-15: Shortly after take-off the crew noted that all fuel boost pump lights were flickering indicating low fuel pressure. The crew declared an emergency and returned for an uneventful landing at Halifax. When the fuel pump inlet screens were examined, they were found to be plugged with ice crystals. The aircraft was placed in a hanger to warm the fuel then a 20 gallon fuel sample was drained. Two quarts of water were found in the sample. The company is investigating the last three fuel stops - Ft. Lauderdale, Calgary and Edmonton.
