Incident at THOMPSON MB (CYTH)


2001-01-24: C-GPIM, a Piper Cheyenne with 4 people on board, was estimating Thompson airport at 0546Z on a flight from Oxford House. At 0546Z, the pilot advised he was overshooting Runway 23 due to unsafe left gear indication. The pilot cancelled IFR at this time and executed a low pass over Runway 23 to have his gear visually checked. The FSS operator and a company staff person on the apron both observed the gear to be down. ERS responded and the aircraft landed safely at 0613Z. Weather was not a factor. Runway 05/23 was voice-Notamed closed by Thompson FSS from 0614Z to 0625Z.
