Incident at Moncton


1997-10-07: TGO961 (C-FCFF) BE20 with co-pilot landing at night at Moncton, on touchdown the aircraft struck and broke the third runway edge light from the threshold on the left side. The aircraft remained on the runway surface. During the daily inspection the next morning, maintenance found damage to the left main landing gear area. Both tires and wheels on the main gear along with the heat manifold were replaced and the aircraft returned to service. TSB case closed. UPDATE: TGO961 BE20 (C-GCFF) was at the end of taxiway Alpha leading to runway 29 when take-off clearance for the night landing training flight was received. While rolling in preparation for take-off, the PF proceeded to line up the aircraft with the runway lights, however, the PF realised that the runway was not equipped with centreline runway lights and that the aircraft was too close to the left edge of the runway. The PF brought the aircraft onto the runway centreline and continued the take-off. At no time did the crew suspect damage or notice anything unusual. They completed their training flight and left the aircraft parked on the ramp overnight. Damage to the left landing gear tires and bleed air heating collar was discovered during inspection of the aircraft on the subsequent morning. Pieces of white glass were found in the landing gear. The third runway edge light from taxiway Alpha on the left side of runway 29 was found damaged. The crew was advised of the damage to the left gear, however, they were not aware their aircraft had struck the runway edge light during the flight.
