Incident at FORT SMITH NT (CYSM)
2003-01-28: UPDATE Maintenance and Manufacturing reported that the crew could not get a solid down and locked indication from the R/H main landing gear; the light was flickering. Company SOPs were followed and the flight landed uneventfully. Maintenance placed the a/c on jacks and discovered a R/H down and locked micro-switch was cracked. Assuming the cracked switch was allowing the electrical circuit to the light to be intermittent, it was changed. Several gear cycles were completed with fault free operation. The aircraft has been released for return to service and the operator's Evaluation Program has captured the fault data for further analysis and action if required.
2003-01-27: PLR 790, a Beech King Air 90, was on approach to Fort Smith when the crew advised CARS that the landing gear was not lowering properly. They made made several low passes to confirm that the gear appeared to be down. PLR 790 landed safely at 1839Z.
