Incident at Saskatoon, SK


1997-09-26: Fenx 6 filed an IFR flight plan for Moose Jaw, with some VFR approaches at Saskatoon prior to leaving the Saskatoon area. The a/c was being vectored for the first approach, when the pilot advised the TCU of an airframe overheat condition. The pilot declared an emergency, CFR was placed on standby, and the a/c landed without further incident at 2208Z. There were no injuries or reported damage to the a/c. The CT-114 Tutor has an airframe heat sensor in the tail, which detects leakage of exhaust gases from the tailpipe. It is not known if there was an actual leak, or if the sensor was giving a false reading. Normal CAF procedures in these incidents is to declare an emergency, and land as soon as practicable.
