Incident at CLYDE RIVER NU (CYCY)
2003-04-28: BFF 201, a Beech King Air 200 with 13 people on board, landed at Clyde River after a flight from Nanisivik and the a/c touched down long with approximately 1,800 feet of runway remaining. (The airstrip at Clyde River is 3,500 feet gravel.) The aircraft skidded off the end of runway and travelled beyond the runway end lights, but apparently did not leave the prepared surface. The airport maintainer was called out by the owner of Air Nunavut to pull the aircraft back onto the runway. One main tire lost some air during extraction, but it appears that the a/c is undamaged. There were no injuries to any of the occupants. The company Director of Maintenance is en route to examine the condition of the a/c. TSB Montreal is looking into the occurrence.
2003-04-29: UPDATE TSB reported that company maintenance inspected the a/c and found no damage. The tires were changed as a precaution and the a/c was then flown back to Iqaluit. The company will examine this incident and use it as a training item for their flight crews, with particular emphasis on stablized approaches, approach speeds, touchdown points and proper use of propeller reverse.
