Incident at STEPHENVILLE NL (CYJT)

Summary

2001-08-24: A01A0103: TGO961, a Beechcraft 200 had departed Stephenville for Moncton and, upon selection, the landing gear failed to retract. The crew elected to continue to Moncton with the landing gear extended; however, while en route, the crew discovered that the landing gear main circuit breaker had popped. The crew decided to reset the circuit breaker and, when reset, they were able to retract the landing gear; however, during the retraction, the circuit breaker popped again and the landing gear returned to the extended position. The crew decided to continue to destination and attempt to reset the circuit breaker before landing. On final approach, in VFR weather conditions, the crew selected the landing gear to the down position and reset the circuit breaker; the circuit breaker remained in the closed position with the hydraulic pressure light indicating normal operation. The crew monitored the circuit breaker for fire indication and they completed a fly-by of the control tower to confirm landing gear position. After confirmation of the landing gear position by the tower, the aircraft landed at Moncton without further incident. Maintenance personnel at Moncton performed several landing gear swings with and without the engine starter engaged; they could not duplicate the problem. A hydraulic circuit breaker and hydraulic actuator were ordered and will be installed; maintenance will then perform further testing of the landing gear system.
