Incident at Winnipeg, Manitoba

Summary

1996-04-26: The Boeing 737, C-GVPW, was climbing through 6,000 feet after departure, when the co-pilot noticed the reading on the hydraulic "A" system quantity guage to be decreasing. Shortly thereafter the warning lights illuminated and the guage indications for both quantity and pressure were zero. The crew carried out checklist procedures and returned to the Winnipeg airport where a landing was conducted without further incident. Maintenance inspection revealed that a hydraulic return line in the area above the left main landing gear had chafed against the hydraulic reservoir pressure line, causing a leak and fluid loss. The line was replaced and the aircraft returned to service.
