Incident at Winnipeg, MB


1997-08-12: The Air Niagara F-28 was on a charter flight from Minneapolis to Winnipeg with a crew of 4 and 36 passengers. On final approach to YWG, the crew advised ATC of an unsafe gear indication, so the crew did a flyby followed by a systems check in the local area. The crew subsequently reported a safe gear indication and landed without further incident with ERS on standby. The company later reported a burned out light bulb in the gear indicator.
