Incident at Winnipeg, MB


1999-02-02: ACA 194, an A319, departed Winnipeg (YWG) for Toronto, and shortly after takeoff the crew reported that they could not get a safe gear up indication. The crew levelled the a/c at 4,000 feet and flew eastbound while attempting to resolve the problem. Approximately 25 miles east, the crew advised that they were returning. The flight landed without incident at 2136Z and ERS was not required. Initial information indicates that the occurrence may be related to a computer problem. TSB has been informed and more information may be available. OPI - System Safety UPDATE TSB reported that the crew observed an uplock fault and LGCIU message on their ECAM. After returning to YWG, company maintenance found the nosegear uplock latch in the retracted position, with the landing gear extended. The nose gear assembly was replaced, a gear swing completed and the a/c returned to service.
