Incident at TALOYOAK NU (CYYH)


2001-10-02: UPDATE Maintenance and Manufacturing reported that the left landing gear down lock light was intermittent, but the light illuminated when the aircraft landed at Cambridge Bay. The temperature was around freezing with freezing rain, and maintenance could not duplicate the condition on the ground. They suspect it was due to water/slush freezing on the gear mechanism. The aircraft was returned to service.
2001-10-01: KBA 515, an Embraer 110 with 13 people on board, was approaching Toloyoak, NU for landing when the crew observed an unsafe gear indication. They elected to return to Cambridge Bay, where they declared an emergency to the CARS operator. The RCMP and local fire department were notified of the situation. The crew conducted a low pass over the airport for a visual inspection by the company engineer and managed to get a safe gear down indication. The flight landed safely at 1858Z. The cause of the gear problem is not known.
