Incident at Bloodvein, MB


1997-08-12: C-GYYK, with a pilot and 5 passengers on board was inbound to Bloodvein on a VFR flight plan, and made a hard landing on touchdown, possibly due to wind shear. After the stop at Bloodvein and doing a walkaround, the pilot could see no apparent problems with the landing gear. However on the third leg of the trip and after the second takeoff after the hard landing, the pilot was unable to retract the gear. The pilot diverted to the company maintenance base at Arness, and prior to landing, he had three green on his gear indicator and made a safe landing. Upon inspection, it was discovered that the gear was damaged and will necessitate repairs.
