Incident at Halifax NS


1997-03-20: ARN 855 which departed Halifax at 2020Z was enroute to Moncton NB. At 25 nm north of Halifax the crew advised of an "indication problem" that the company engineers wanted to look at. The aircraft returned to Halifax and landed safely at 2034Z. No assistance was required. UPDATE:This "indication problem" was a flap problem. The flaps were visually confirmed to be at the retracted position but the flap position indicator was at 33 degrees. Maintenance changed the flap computer.
