Incident at Winnipeg, MB (Aerodrome, runway or taxiway shutdown)


1999-03-24: MNS 769, a Beech King Air, landed on Runway 31 at Winnipeg International Airport and came to a stop and the crew advised that they were unable to taxi. The Airport Duty Manager responded and found that all four main tires had blown, perhaps because the brakes were frozen. Because the flight was a medevac, an ambulance was escorted to the a/c and the patient transferred. The runway was closed and several other a/c were diverted to Runway 36, winds were from 320 degrees at 15-20 knots. The a/c was removed from the runway about 45 minutes later. OPI - System Safety UPDATE TSB reported that the brakes were frozen, causing the four main tires to blow on landing. The operator is considering equipping the a/c with a brake heating device. UPDATE Maintenance and Manufacturing reported that company maintenance found water and ice in the brakes. New tires and brake discs were installed. There was no damage to the wheel hubs, but the units were NDTed and no faults were found. The a/c has been returned to service.
