Accident at Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (Aerodrome, runway or taxiway shutdown)


1996-11-21: Shortly after departing Buffalo Narrows on a routine charter flight, the pilot and only occupant of the wheel equipped Beech 58 advised the company that the nose gear and one main gear were stuck in a semi retracted position. The pilot, after a series of gear lowering and retraction attempts, which proved fruitless, elected to divert to Saskatoon where a partial gear up landing was accomplished. ERS was on standby. The pilot was unharmed, however the aircraft was substantially damaged. Runway 25/07 was closed at 1722Z so that the aircraft could be removed to the hangar line.
