Accident at Boston Camp, NWT


1996-10-25: The pilot of the twin-engine Piper PA-31 Navajo aircraft was landing on the ice runway after completing the flight from Yellowknife. The landing gear remained retracted and the aircraft landed on the underside of its fuselage and slid to a stop. The fuselage sustained minor damage; however the engines and propellers were substantially damaged. The pilot and the two passengers were not injured. The operator indicated that a high power approach was employed by the pilot, thereby preventing the landing gear warning horn from operating.
