Incident at Goose Bay, Labrador


1997-03-20: Aircraft unable to receive on VHF. The control tower was aware of his inbound flight and had ERS on standby for landing as they were unsure if the pilot was experiencing problems other than communications. The aircraft landed with only one engine operating. Maintenance determined that the engine problem related to a bearing seal but was unable to duplicate the communications problem. TSB case closed.
