Incident at CALGARY INTL AB (CYYC) (Aerodrome - runway or taxiway surface condition)


2001-06-27: UPDATE Maintenance and Manufacturing reported that the company confirmed aircraft C-GXWJ is not in service due to the tire failure damage to the wing pie panel and is awaiting parts. The company is submitting an SDR report and will be investigating the recap failure with the manufacturer.
2001-06-22: UPDATE TSB reported that WJA 89 was on a flight from Calgary to Vancouver. During the take-off roll the crew heard an unusual bang. After takeoff, ATC contacted the crew and advised them that debris was found on the runway. Westjet maintenance control personnel examined the debris and determined it to be rubber from a tire, and part of a main gear door fairing from a B737. The crew was unable to confirm damage by looking through the main gear viewers. As the aircraft was now only 100 NM out of Vancouver, the crew decided to continue to Vancouver. No emergency was declared but ERS precautionary assistance was requested and the aircraft landed without difficulty. Maitenance inspection revealed the # 4 main wheel rubber almost completely missing with only the rim left on the axle, a severed gear door fairing, a torn lower wing panel, aft flap cracking and bending, and mid and fore flap denting. The damage was repaired and the aircraft returned to service.
2001-06-20: WJA 89 departed from Runway 16 at Calgary and the crew reported rubber on the runway. Airport staff checked the runway and found rubber and other debris south of the intersection with Runway 10. CMM 2791 was instructed to overshoot Runway 16, was offered Runway 10 but the crew elected to try Runway 16 again. Three other aircraft were diverted to Runway 10.
