Incident at Saskatoon, Saskatchewan


1996-03-19: The Grumman G-159, C-FRTT, operating as Air Sask Flight 698, departed Saskatoon enroute to Regina. Shortly after takeoff, when the crew selected the landing gear up, they received a cockpit indication that the right main landing gear had not retracted. The crew selected the landing gear down, returned to the Saskatoon Airport, and landed without further incident. Maintenance engineers carried out several gear retraction cycles and found that the system performance was normal. The engineers suspect that air may have entered the hydraulic system when the aircraft was not being operated for several days. A test flight was completed uneventfully, and the aircraft returned to service.
