Incident at Regina, SK


1997-07-14: The pilot, who was the only occupant of the spray-equipped Schweizer G 164A, departed Regina on a routine VFR flight. About 10 miles northeast of Regina, the pilot advised that he would be returning to the airport because of a rough-running engine. The a/c landed safely on Runway 31, however while taxiing, it became apparent that engine power could not be reduced, so the pilot shut off the magnetos and coasted off the runway onto the grass infield about 150 feet east of the runway. Maintenance determined that the problem was a jammed butterfly valve in the carburetor which will be repaired or replaced.
