Incident at GOOSE BAY NL (CYYR)
2003-03-05: Update Maintenance and Manufacturing - The pilot/owner, reported no emergency was declared. He said he carried out a precautionary landing as he heard the front wheel vibrating after weight was taken off it, during take-off. The pilot went on to say that prior to take-off, he had towed the aircraft with the use of a tow bar; this required the removal of the safety pin nut and bolt. The bolt was still there, but almost all the way out. He feels he must not have had the safety pin locked following the reinstallation. The bolt was pushed in and he taxied to Lab Air where he obtained a new nut and safety pin.
