Incident at Grande Prairie, AB


1999-10-29: The crew of PLR 527, a BAe Jetstream 31, advised FSS at Grande Prairie of a possible nosegear problem during approach. ERS was requested to be on standby and the a/c subsequently landed uneventfully. The nature of the problem is not yet known, although TSB has been advised and more information may be available. OPI - System Safety UPDATE Maintenance and Manufacturing reported that company maintenance reported through an SDR that the nose gear down and locked indicator switch had been determined as the fault in the system. The switch had failed in the unlocked indication position and depressing the switch actuator had no effect on the switch. The switch was replaced and the aircraft returned to service.
