Incident at Churchill, MB


1999-06-28: N9NX, a Cessna Caravan on amphibious floats, was taxiing for departure on Runway 33 at Churchill with 6 people on board when the pilot reported that he had a problem with the landing gear. It appears that the brakes locked up at some time in the taxi, causing both main wheels to blow. The pilot also reported that the tires subsequently caught fire and the occupants were able to quickly extingush the fire. The a/c was pulled off to the side of the runway, where it remains, waiting for replacement tires and an AME to examine it. OPI - System Safety
