Incident at Calgary, Alberta

Summary

1997-01-13: The crew of the Boeing 737 were cleared for take-off and had just advanced the thrust levers toward the take- off thrust position when they experienced a take-off warning horn. The captain rejected the take-off and taxied clear of the runway. While the First Officer was advising the control tower of their problem, the captain began trouble shooting, and noted that a leading edge flap circuit breaker had popped. He reset the breaker and cycled the leading edge flaps, noting the problem had been rectified. The crew completed the pre take-off checks and made an uneventful take-off all within their prescribed flow times. There were 5 crew and 28 passengers on board.
