2003-02-28: At 1708Z, C-GFYN, a DHC-6 Twin Otter, backtracked for departure from Runway 31T at Cambridge Bay. At 1711Z the pilot advised the CARS O/C of a flat tire and that he would have to unload, repair the tire before proceeding off the runway. C-FZEB, a Cessna 337, was inbound to Cambridge Bay and overflew the runway before landing without incident at 1819Z.

As we understand it, there as no other option was available to the incoming a/c and therefore no further action is required.
