Incident at ST. JOHN'S INTL NL (CYYT)


2001-03-14: TSB File A01A0020: According to FDR data, the Boeing 757 landed hard (+2.76 g) on runway 11 at St. Johns after the aircraft encountered wind shift/wind shear and turbulence when descending through 200 feet. The winds were reported as 010/20+27 kts. Before departure from St. Johns, the aircraft was examined by the crew, with particular attention to the wheel well and wing box areas of the fueslage. Nothing abnormal was noted except for one oxygen mask which had deployed in the aft lavatory. The aircraft departed for Halifax, where maintenance carried out a hard landing check. Nothing abnormal was discovered during this inspection, and the aircraft was released. During the next trip (Halifax-Holguin (Cuba) - Halifax), while departing from Holguin, the left gear would not retract. The aircraft was diverted to Fort Lauderdale, where damage to the left gear was discovered. It is believed that the gear damage (type and severity to be reported), was incurred as a result of the hard landing at St. Johns.
