Incident at GREATER MONCTON ROMEO LEBLANC INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

Summary

1997-03-25: The aircraft was returning to the airport after a local flight. When the landing gear was selected down the nose gear did not lock into position. The pilot flew past the tower and the controller advised that the nose gear doors were open and the nose wheel was only partially extended. The pilot cycled the gear several times and carried out some abrupt manoeuvers in an attempt to lower the nose gear, all to no avail. Just after turning final, with the intent of carrying out a nose gear up landing, the nose gear snapped to the locked position. The aircraft landed safely at 19:17z. Preliminary examination of the nose gear did not revel any obvious problem. TSB more to follow.UPDATE - Examination of the nose gear revealed that the nose gear oleo was not fully charged and as a consequence was not fully extending which in turn caused the forks of the nose gear assembly to snag on the actuator attachment points. TSB case closed.
