, a Cessna 172, was on final to Runway 33 at Saskatoon after a flight from Russel, when the pilot advised Tower that he had lost engine power and was landing short. The aircraft landed approximately 1,000 feet short of the threshold and remained upright. There was no damage to the aircraft. Several aircraft were diverted to Runway 27. C-FMJO
was removed to the apron at 1800Z. TSB reported that the pilot completed a forced landing in 6 inches of snow on level ground 400 feet short of the threshold of Runway 33, without further incident. The aircraft was towed to an AMO, and examination did not reveal any mechanical discrepancies. Temperatures were low and the pilot suspects that carburetor ice may have formed during the approach despite the use of carburetor heat.
