2001-09-26: TSB Update September 17, 2001. ARN 8809, a DHC-8, was 2.5 nautical miles back on final approach to runway 08 at Goose Bay (CYYR) when the crew received a TCAS RA warning. The crew followed the TCAS instructions to climb. The TCAS warning was triggered by a flight of F-16 aircraft from the Royal Netherlands Air Force which was also approaching CYYR for an overhead break for runway 08. The DHC-8 crew noticed three F-16s at their altitude overtaking them and they then decided to descend. The DHC-8 continued the approach to a landing on runway 08.
