Accident at Winnipeg, MB


1999-03-17: C-FCNU, a Beech 95 Travelair with 2 people on board, landed on Runway 18 at Winnipeg after a local training flight and apparently the pilots neglected to lower the landing gear. The a/c settled onto its belly and came to a stop on the runway near Taxiway F. ERS was dispatched to the site and the occupants were uninjured and there was no fire. The a/c sustained damage to the propellers and underside of the fuselage. The wheels were found to be still in the wheelwells after the incident. It is not known if the gear warning alarm sounded during the incident. Runway 18 was NOTAMed closed until the a/c could be moved. OPI - System Safety UPDATE TSB reported that both pilots confirmed gear down before landing, however, the gear was found fully up and locked after the occurrence. Following removal of the a/c back to the hangar, the gear functioned normally with appropriate warnings during testing.
