Incident at Whitehorse, YT


1999-09-16: The pilot of CF-TFS, a Cessna 210, departed Runway 13R at Whitehorse at 0010Z enroute to Beaver Creek and the Tower observed that the aircraft's gear was only partially retracted. At 0016Z, the pilot advised that he was returning. When the aircraft was on final for Runway 13R, the Tower observed that the gear appeared fully extended. Aircraft landed safely at 0020Z. OPI - Maintenance and Manufacturing UPDATE M. & M. reported that the AMO stated that the problem has not been resolved. Modifications were performed to remove gear doors and the gear was swung and rigged to their satisfaction prior to test flight. Report to follow when information is available. UPDATE In a further update, M. & M. reported that the AMO found that the aircraft landing gear was not rigged properly when the aircraft initially came into the hangar (they suspect the main landing gear was resting on the gear doors in the up position). When the mod to remove the gear doors was incorporated, the gear would not stay locked in the up position. Additional rigging is under way.
