Incident at Halifax, N.S.


1996-05-21: When the landing gear was selected down, the left main gear did not indicate down. During an attempt to replace the bulb, the lamp socket shorted and all power to the landing gear position indicators was lost. The flight crew coordinated with maintenance and then flew by the tower for a gear down confirmation. The aircraft landed without incident with ERS on standby. Maintenance replaced a burnt out left gear down indicator bulb, reset a popped circuit breaker and carried out functional checks before releasing the aircraft to service. TSB case closed.
