Incident at Winnipeg, Manitoba


1996-12-31: The pilot reported pressurization problems on departure, and requested to return to Winnipeg. The aircraft dumped fuel and landed safely at 1735Z. UPDATE: Kelowna Flightcraft 101, a Boeing 727-227, departed from Winnipeg on a scheduled passenger flight to Vancouver. Shortly after takeoff, the crew noted that the cabin pressurization outflow valve would only close part way. They diverted the flight over the Lake Winnipeg fuel dumping area, dumped fuel, and returned to Winnipeg without further incident. Maintenance found ice partially blocking the cabin outflow valve and removed it.
