2003-08-08: TSB Update - 2003-08-08 - A03A0090: The Air Labrador B1900 (Reg. C-GLHO) executed a missed approach at St. John's due to an unsafe landing gear indication. The crew extended the landing gear manually and landed safely. Maintenance advised that the electric motor running the hydraulic system had failed. Electric motor was replaced and aircraft returned to service.
2003-08-07: Maintenance and Manufacturing - 2003-08-06 - The aircraft departed for St. John's, after take-off the gear was selected up, the gear went up without problems. Later departing St. John's the crew noticed the L/H gear did not appear to be all the way up, they returned to St. John's. The aircraft went to the hangar and put on jacks to check this out, all was good. Each gear in the wheel well has an up position switch, with the indication of a red light in the gear selector handle, when the gear is in transition, this light will stay illuminated until the 3 gear makes contact with the up position switch, then the light will go out. The crew did not have this light on after the gear was up. No faults were found and the aircraft was returned to service.
