Incident at Aircraft Incident


1996-03-21: The Piper PA-28R-180 departed Russell, MB on a local flight. After takeoff when the pilot selected landing gear up, he noted that the landing gear in transit light remained on and the nosewheel was not fully retracted. The pilot then selected the landing gear down and found that the nose gear would not extend fully. The pilot carried out the alternate gear lowering method in accordance with the pilot's operating handbook, but the nosewheel would not extend fully. The pilot returned to the Russell Airport and landed on Rwy 32 (turf). The nose gear collapsed shortly after touchdown. The pilot was not injured; the aircraft sustained minor damage.
