Incident at Regina, SK


1999-02-08: C-GXVZ, a Piper Comanche, was on approach at Regina after a VFR flight from Humboldt, when the pilot reported a problem lowering the gear. The pilot orbited to the north of the airport and was able to lower the gear manually. ERS was on standby as the a/c landed uneventfully on Runway 31. No other a/c were inconvenienced. OPI - Maintenance and Manufacturing UPDATE M. & M. reported that they contacted the pilot after the occurrence and he indicated that the a/c was raised up on jacks and the gear was tested. No discrepancies were found, but lack of lubrication or freezing were the likely causes of the problem. There was no evidence of component failure. The gear system was lubricated and the a/c released to service.
