Incident at GANDER INTL NL (CYQX)

Summary

2005-05-06: Maintenance and Manufacturing Update: The aircraft returned to Gander with a reported snag of flaps stuck at 17 degrees (take-off/approach setting). Upon investigation a broken wire was discovered and the flaps were secured in the 0 degree position and the aircraft continued the rest of the day operating as per the MEL. That night the broken wire C21A22 at P416 for the flap up limit switch was repaired with the system operationally checked serviceable and the aircraft returned to service with no other difficulties. The wire was broken right where it enters the back shell for the aircraft side of a cannon plug. This plug and harness are located in the cove where the flaps retract. There was no sign of interference with the flap or structure. Possible poor wiring practices in the assembly and securing of this plug may have been a contributing factor. The AME who carried out the repair installed spiral wrap and re-tied the wiring, changing the routing thus relieving the strain.
2005-04-28: The Exploits Valley Air Services B1900 (EV7620), departed CYQX 1833Z enroute to CYYT. At 1840Z the pilot requested to return CYQX due to problem with flap indicator. Aircraft cleared as requested and landed without incident at 1852Z.
