Incident at Winnipeg, MB


1997-07-30: ACA 191 departed Winnipeg at 2020Z for Saskatoon. About 10 miles north of YWG, the crew advised ATC that they would be returning to the airport because there was a problem related to a wheel brake, perhaps overheated. The a/c returned and landed without incident on Runway 36 at 2036Z with ERS on standby. No other a/c were inconvenienced. UPDATE Company maintenance reports that the Brake Temperature Monitoring Unit malfunctioned, giving a false warning of hot brakes. The unit has been replaced and the a/c is back in service. The hot brake indication was on the number 3 wheel brake which read 900 degrees. The crew lowered the gear and the temperature decreased to 500 degrees and then rose again, so the crew made the decision to return to YWG.
