Incident at WINNIPEG / JAMES ARMSTRONG RICHARDSON INTL MB (CYWG)

Summary

2003-06-24: When on short final for Runway 31 at Winnipeg, the pilot of C-GMOB, a PA-31 Navajo with 8 people on board, overshot due to an unsafe gear indication. ERS responded. The pilot did two low passes for inspection by company personnel then landed safely on Runway 25 at 2341Z. The a/c was then towed to a hangar. The cause of the gear problem is not known.
2003-06-26: UPDATE Maintenance and Manufacturing reported that the company Quality Manager reported that a seal on the hydraulic pump failed and the system slowly depleted the fluid in the hydraulic reservoir. The pump was replaced, the hydraulic fluid replenished and the aircraft released to service.
2003-07-03: UPDATE TSB reported that the Fast Air Piper Navajo PA-31, C-GMOB, was on short final to Runway 31 at Winnipeg, MB when an overshoot was executed because of an unsafe nose-gear indication. The checklist was followed with the assistance of a passenger who was a type qualified pilot. The unsafe indication could not be corrected. Two flybys were made to permit an inspection by maintenance using binoculars and a decision was made to land with the gear extended with the unsafe indication. The nose gear remained extended during the landing and the aircraft was then towed to the hangar with the landing pins inserted. Post incident maintenance inspection revealed a small leak at a hydraulic pump seal.
