Incident at SAINT JOHN NB (CYSJ)


1998-02-18: The Teal was inbound from Grand Bay, NB special VFR. The pilot had trouble selecting the gear down but eventually thought it was in the down and locked position. Upon landing on RWY 23 the landing gear collapsed. The aircraft veered off the right side of the runway and stopped short of the lights. The pilot escaped injury and damage was confined to sheared rivets in the hull. The aircraft was parked outside since last fall and was just purchased by the pilot. This flight was a ferry flight to Saint John for a 100 hour inspection and a re-issue of the Certificate of Airworthiness. TSB closed. UPDATE: Aircraft ident changed to GPZF
