Incident at THOMPSON MB (CYTH) (Aerodrome, runway or taxiway shutdown)


2003-04-07: The pilot of C-FURX, a Piper Arrow, was inbound to Thompson from Grace Lake when he advised Thompson FSS he did not have a down and locked indication for the nosegear. After several attempts to get the gear down, including recycling the gear and bouncing the a/c on the runway during a touch and go, the FSS visually confirmed the nosegear was not down. AFF was called out and the city fire department was on standby. At 2250Z, the pilot shut down the engine and the electronics on approach and landed on Runway 14 with no nose gear, resulting in the closure of the runway for approximately 3 hours. There is minor damage to the a/c, primarily to the propeller. An AMO will examine the a/c to determine the cause of the gear problem.
