Accident at Saskatoon, SK (Aerodrome, runway or taxiway shutdown)


1997-11-12: C-GVWR was on a local VFR flight with 2 people on board, and when the pilot came back to land at Saskatoon, the nose gear collapsed on the roll-out on Runway 15. There were no injuries, and the extent of damage to the a/c is unknown at this time. The runway was closed until the a/c could be removed. UPDATE Both the instructor and student confirmed that they saw a " three green" indication for the landing gear prior to landing, and both said neither one of them moved the gear handle after selecting gear down. Maintenance inspection could not find any discrepancies with the system and the gear cycled normally when tested. The company will submit an SDR to Transport Canada.
