1999-07-14: C-GMOC, a Beech King Air, departed from Runway 31L at Whitehorse on a medevac flight and shortly after takeoff, the crew reported that the gear would not retract. They returned to land safely with ERS on standby. OPI - Maintenance and Manufacturing UPDATE M. & M. reported that the gear was blown down using the Nitrogen emergency system and landed without incident.
