Incident at STONY RAPIDS SK (CYSF) (Aerodrome - runway or taxiway surface condition)
2001-06-25: Transwest Air 220, a Beech 1900D was landing at Stony Rapids on a flight from La Ronge. The flight touched down hard, and the crew noted that the main landing gear green ""down"" indicator lights went out and the gear unsafe light came on. The crew rejected the landing, departed Stony Rapids, and diverted the flight to Prince Albert, where the aircraft landed with emergency crews standing by. The landing gear was secured and the aircraft was towed to the hangar. No injuries were reported. The aircraft was examined and maintenance found that the main gear drag link braces had flexed, breaking the gear indicator microswitches. It was reported that the aircraft landed just beyond a sinkhole on Runway 24 about 1,000 feet from the threshold.
2001-06-26: UPDATE Aerodrome Safety reported that there is a published NOTAM advising of the depression on Runway 24 at Stony Rapids. All pilots using the airport should be aware of the existing condition of the runway.
