Incident at ST. THERESA POINT MB (CYST)

Summary

2003-01-21: PAG 621, a Metro II, was inbound to St. Theresa Point on a flight from Winnipeg, the crew received an arrival advisory from Winnipeg FSS and subsequently reported overhead St. Theresa with an unsafe gear indication. The crew then reported five miles west of St. Theresa with a safe gear indication and landed safely at 1821Z. The cause of the gear problem is not known.
2003-01-23: UPDATE Company maintenance reported that on approach into YST, the R/H main gear failed to indicate down and locked when selected. The gear was cycled a few times and the gear indicated normally and the aircraft landed without incident. Subsequent testing and inspection could not duplicate the fault, The right I/B downlock switch was replaced the gear tested extensively and the aircraft returned to service. The gear indication system found in this aircraft has proven to be problematic in colder weather. An improved landing gear indication system is undergoing testing and expected to be submitted to Transport Canada for approval next week.
