Incident at Thunder Bay, Ontario


1996-03-27: The pilot advised Thunder Bay Tower that he had an unsafe nose gear indication. The pilot requested and then received permission to conduct a fly by the Tower so that Tower personnel could better determine whether or not the gear appeared down and locked. The Tower reported to the pilot that the gear appeared normal, so the pilot landed without further difficulties. Maintenance determined a broken wire on the nose gear micro switch.
