Incident at Pitt Meadows


1997-09-29: The pilot began experiencing electrical problems on a flight from Vernon to Pitt Meadows. He was unable to use his radios to contact Pitt Meadows Tower but was able to talk to the controller by use of his cellular telephone. The electrical failure also caused his landing gear selector to fail. He extended the gear manually and flew slowly by the tower to confirm the extended gear. The pilot then landed, however the gear collapsed shortly after touchdown. Neither the pilot nor his passenger was injured.
