Incident at GREATER MONCTON ROMEO LEBLANC INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

Summary

1996-06-27: The Navajo was on a scheduled courier flight from Chatham to Moncton. During the landing check the crew felt that there was an abnormality with the brakes and how they felt. They circled the airfield and consulted with maintenance to confirm that the brake lever was in the "off" position. At this time the feel of the brakes returned to normal so a decision was made to land the aircraft. During the landing roll both main tires blew and the aircraft was disabled on the runway until maintenance could replace the tires. RWY 29 was reopened at 2312. Maintenance could not determine why the brakes were on. The aircraft was later dispached with the parking brake lever lock wired to the "off" position. TSB closed.
