1996-11-19: Canadian 1322, a FK28
, was enroute Winnipeg to The Pas, when a missed approach was conducted due to a landing gear problem. The crew elected to divert to Saskatoon where the company has a maintenance facility. At 0228Z, 100 miles northeast of Saskatoon, the crew advised ACC that they were declaring an emergency and requested that ERS be called out. Indication in the cockpit was that the nose gear was down but not locked. Upon reaching Saskatoon, the crew elected to hold for a few minutes to burn off more fuel before they commenced an approach on runway 09. The aircraft landed safely at 0310Z. There were besides 30 passengers, 4 crew on board and approximately 1800 lbs of fuel. The nose gear malfunction was attributed to snow and slush which in all likelihood was picked up when the aircraft departed Winnipeg.
