Incident at FREDERICTON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT (FOD (foreign object debris))
2003-06-23: At 1757Z CFZTQ taxied for departure on Runway 27 and advised the FSS of a small piece metal on the edge of the Runway intersection. The FSS advised RED5 to check the runway. A small cone shaped piece was found by RED5. The FSS advised CGEBS (a C172) of this information as they had departed Runway 27 at 1755Z. CGEBS landed and advised that the part was not from him and may be from a Navaho type aircraft. The FSS called the Halifax FIC to advise them that CME118 (a Prince Edward Air PA31) had departed from Fredericton bound for St. Leonard VFR at 1736Z to relay this information to the pilot or company. FSS advised Moncton shift supervisor at 1830Z.
2003-06-26: Update - Maintenance and Manufacturing - Prince Edward Air had received a call from FS regarding this incident & the pilot of the aircraft in question conducted an inspection. Maintenance personnel conducted a more thorough inspection after this report was issued & no missing pieces were detected. If these were aircraft parts, they did not originate from the Prince Edward Air aircraft as originally suggested.
