Incident at ST. JOHN'S INTL NL (CYYT) (Aerodrome, runway or taxiway shutdown)


2003-06-05: LAL500, a Beech 1900 en route from Goose Bay landed on Runway 29 in St. John's at 0442Z and had a flat tire on landing. The tire left the rim, disabling the aircraft and thus closing the runway, until the aircraft could be removed by ground handlers. There was minimal impact on operations, the wind switched shortly after the occurrence to favor Runway 34. The aircraft was removed and Runway 29 was opened at 0613Z.
2003-06-18: TSB Update - 2003-06-12 - A03A0061: LAL500, an Air Labrador Beech 1900C was en route from Goose Bay to St. John's and landed on runway 29 at 0222 NDT. After landing, the crew reported that they had a deflated tire and they were unable to taxi the aircraft. Maintenance personnel replaced both tires on the left main landing gear after which the aircraft was removed from the runway. The surface wind direction shifted in favour of runway 34 shortly after the incident and there was minimal disruption of airport operations. After the aircraft was removed, runway 29 reopened at 0343 NDT. Upon further investigation it was revealed that both tires had deflated and exhibited abrasion damage. The surface wind at the time of landing was 320 at 10 gusting to 20 knots resulting in a right crosswind. There was no damage to the aircraft and it has since been returned to service.
