Incident at ISLAND LAKE MB (CYIV) (Aerodrome, runway or taxiway shutdown, Aerodrome - runway or taxiway surface condition)
2001-08-30: SGK 922, a Cessna 441, became stuck in a soft spot on the runway at Island Lake airport. The airport manager responded and closed the runway for 30 minutes while the a/c could be removed. Six other a/c were diverted to St. Theresa Point airport. A NOTAM was issued concerning the runway condition.
2001-09-04: UPDATE Aerodrome Safety reported that the airport operator has informed TC that the soft spot was about 5' wide X 20' long. It was located along the right hand edge (northeast side) of the runway approximately 1,300 feet from the threshold of Runway 30. This has never been a problem area before. It is believed that this was a result of the rain received the previous day and the excavation which had occurred at that spot in the spring. The spot has been regravelled, graded and packed. The area was serviceable by the following morning. As this area is well drained, the problem is not expected to recur.
2001-08-31: UPDATE Maintenance and Manufacturing reported that the aircraft was removed from the soft spot on the runway by the fight crew following directions given by Skyward D. of M. The flight crew carried out a visual inspection of the landing gear. Upon arrival to Winnipeg, the aircraft was further inspected by Skyward maintenance personnel, and no faults found. Upon returning to Thompson main base, maintenance once again carried out a comprehensive inspection of the landing gear system.
