Incident at Thompson, Manitoba (Conflict - near collision (VFR or IFR))


1996-12-12: Both aircraft were operating VFR. C-GMOM was on a medevac flight from Cross Lake to Thompson and had advised Air Radio that they would be conducting an approach and landing on runway 23, since a Calm Air flight was using 23. Both aircraft had been provided with airport advisories and traffic information. The pilot of C-GSRL (SGK 300) advised Air Radio that he was taxiing for a departure to York Landing and would be using runway 05. The pilot was informed of the traffic. SGK300 departed 05 and the crew of C-GMOM performed an evasive descent to avoid a possible collision after Air Radio had requested SGK 300 to turn right. However, this failed to produce a response.
