Incident at Whitehorse, YT


1997-09-05: C-FSDZ was inbound to Whitehorse from the north and the crew advised Tower that they suspected that the nosewheel may be flat. They requested ERS to be on standby and the a/c landed on Runway 31L without further incident. It was reported that there was no operational impact at the airport. UPDATE On departure from Watson Lake, there was a shimmy in the nosewheel, which caused the suspicion of a flat tire, however the nosewheel was not flat and the landing at Whitehorse was uneventful.
