Incident at Iqaluit, NT


1999-02-25: C-FQCN, a Beech 99 with 6 people on board, was on approach at Iqaluit after a flight from Cape Dorset when the crew advised that the three green lights for a safe gear down and locked indication would not illuminate. The Captain initiated a go-around, selected gear up, and the "in transit" light also did not illuminate. The Captain then decided to do an emergency gear extension, which was successful. The crew requested that ERS be on standby for the landing, which was accomplished without incident. The cause of the gear extension problem is not known.
