Incident at 80 NM E of Winnipeg, MB

Summary

1999-08-03: ROY 755, a B737, departed Winnipeg (YWG) on a cargo flight and as the a/c was climbing through FL 230 about 80 miles east of YWG, the crew observed the number 1 generator failure light illuminate. This was followed shortly after by the autopilot and the yaw damper disengaging, and the a/c then began to yaw and roll abruptly. The Captain took control of the a/c and elected to return to YWG. The a/c landed safely at YWG and the crew later reported that it required 20 degrees of right aileron to maintain level flight. The generator has since been replaced and the a/c returned to service.
