Incident at ST. JOHN'S INTL NL (CYYT)


1997-01-08: When the flaps were extended on approach into St. John's a "flap lock-out" occurred at the flap 15 position. The crew requested that the CFR be placed on standby for the landing and the landing took place without incident. The flap reset procedure was carried out after landing and the flaps functioned normally. The operator suspects that water may have entered the flap actuators through the screw jack seals during take-off then frose during flight. The operator is in the process of replacing the screw jack seals in their fleet of BAE146 aircraft with a modified seal.
