2005-07-27: Update #1 Maintenance and Manufacturing Please note the following response from the company; C-FGFZ returned (flt turn back) shortly after take-off on July 25th; the left cowling was not properly latched on the o/b aft position of the top fwd cowling. The locking latch was in the locked position, the lock witness lines were lined up and everything indicated it was locked. The crew had did their pre-flight walk around and checked the witness markings, but all indications were that the cowl was secured. The cowl was removed after the turn back and the latch was confirmed to be disengaged. It was noted that sometimes when removing the cowls, that if you turn the latch to far back, it will draw the hook down and then when you turn it forward to latch the cowling, the hook is already drawn down to far to catch the latching dowel on the upper cowl; this appeared to be the case in this particular incident. The cowl was re-secured by maintenance following the investigation and the a/c returned to service.
