Incident at STEPHENVILLE NL (CYJT)

Summary

2002-01-02: TSB Update Dec 31, 2001. A01A0152: The Provincial Airlines Saab 340, call-sign SPR911, was on a scheduled flight from Deer Lake to Stephenville. During the approach at Stephenville the crew reported a nose gear problem to the station operator. When the aircraft overflew the airfield the station operator observed that the nose wheel was canted 60 to 70 degrees from center. The crew diverted to St. John's, then declared an emergency while en route. When the aircraft landed at St. John's the nose wheel snapped back to center upon touchdown. Maintenance inspected the nose gear and found the nose gear strut required servicing. The company has implemented a 400 hour inspection and servicing program as a preventative measure.
