Incident at FREDERICTON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
2005-10-17: C-GPNB, Beech C90A, enroute from Fredericton (CYFC) to St. John?s (CYYT), requested to return to Fredericton due to a technical difficulty, no assistance required. Landed safely at 1950Z. TSB Evaluating.
2005-10-19: Maintenance & Manufacturing Update: Autopilot disengaged so pilot used manual elevator trim & travel found it to be limited in nose up direction. Crew elected to return to home base. Maintenance could not simulate problem on ground tests. The aircraft had recently been parked outside in heavy rain and there were still drops of water on the trim actuator rod that may have frozen at higher altitude. Grease purge determined there was no water inside the actuator. The trim & autopilot operated normal on a test flight and several flights since.
