Incident at Yellowknife, NWT


1997-05-27: C-GPSH was conducting training in the Yellowknife area and after the final landing, the crew informed tower that they had a gear light problem and needed to stop on the runway to insert a gear pin. After inserting the pin and taxiing back to the apron, inspection showed that a landing gear bracket or brackets had been torn off, perhaps in a previous landing. They said that there may be debris on the runway, however a runway check showed no such debris. No other traffic was affected. UPDATE: The landing gear over centre spring retaining bracket broke and the spring affected the micro switches in the wheel well. The spring and bracket were changed.
