Incident at Island Lake, MB (Aerodrome - runway or taxiway surface condition)


1999-10-18: At 1641Z, the crew of WSG 805, a HS 748, advised Winnipeg FSS that the aircraft was stuck in a soft spot approximately 200 to 300 feet from the threshhold of Runway 30 at Island Lake. The aircraft was unloaded and then pulled out of the soft area and was able to depart Runway 20 for Red Lake. The Runway was NOTAMed closed while the aircraft was on the runway. Northern Manitoba has been under the influence of bad weather, rain, snow etc. which causes runways in the north to become soft. OPI - Aerodrome Safety UPDATE Aerodrome Safety reported that the airport operator stated that the pilot had attempted to turn the aircraft around after landing on the runway. During the turn, the main landing gear on one side of the aircraft departed the runway surface and sank in some soft soil between the runway edge lights, approximately 200 - 300 feet from the runway end. The runway was NOTAM'd closed until after the aircraft had been removed. A NOTAM has since been issued advising that the runway edges are soft.
