Incident at EDMONTON CITY CENTRE / BLATCHFORD AB (CYXD) (Aerodrome, runway or taxiway shutdown)

Summary

2003-03-10: CNS 352, a Piper Navajo, was taxiing on Runway 16 at City Centre Airport for departure to Peace River when the pilot reported a hydraulic problem. The a/c was disabled on the runway for about 35 minutes until it could be towed off. Other flights were diverted to alternate runways.
2003-03-11: UPDATE The company reported that the a/c developed a hydraulic leak in the master brake cylinder. In addition, there was some snow accumulation in the brakes, which froze and caused the brakes to lock up when the a/c stopped on the runway. The a/c was towed back to the hangar, where the brakes were thawed and the master cylinder was repaired.
