Incident at Between Regina and Winnipeg


1999-01-06: ACA 103, an A320 with 138 people on board, departed Regina for Toronto, and a short time after takeoff, the crew reported a problem retracting the leading edge slats. They requested FL 190 and advised that they would divert the flight to Winnipeg, where the a/c landed without incident at 2133Z. No other a/c were inconvenienced and ERS was not required. Company maintenance discovered that a ridge of snow and ice had developed outboard of each engine on the back of the number 2 leading edge slats, between the slats and the wing. Maintenance removed the contamination, cycled the slats successfully and returned the a/c to service. OPI - System Safety
