Incident at Winnipeg, MB


1997-05-22: The pilot advised Winnipeg ATS of an unsafe gear indication at 1518Z. ERS was called and responded, however the a/c resolved the problem and landed safely. UPDATE When the crew selected gear down, the two main gear green indicators illuminated, but the nose gear indicator would not illuminate. The a/c overshot and as it flew by the tower for a visual examination, the nose gear light came on. The a/c landed without further incident and later was flown to Saskatoon for a gear swing and inspection, where no discrepancies were found. It is believed that ice formed on the nose gear after taking off from a slushy runway in Calgary and prevented the normal operation of the gear in Winnipeg. Landing gear operation was also found to be normal during a subsequent flight from Saskatoon to Calgary.
