Incident at GOOSE BAY NL (CYYR)


2005-12-12: G-CEAL, Short SD3 60, enroute from Goose Bay (CYYR) to Quebec (CYQB), aborted take-off (1253Z) due to indication of smoke fumes in the cockpit. CFR personnel were called-out at the pilot's request. TSB Case Closed.
2005-12-20: UPDATE TSB A05A0158: G-CEAL, a Shorts 360 on a ferry flight was departing Goose Bay, NL for Quebec City, QC when the flight crew aborted the take off due to a frozen right engine throttle. The crew then shut down the right engine (Pratt and Whitney PT-6-67D) as the throttle would not return to flight idle. Shortly after, the crew noticed an odour and a slight haze of smoke in the cabin. ARFF was requested and the taxied the aircraft back to the airport ramp. Inspection revealed that water had pooled in a low section of the right engine throttle cable and had likely frozen as the aircraft had been exposed to sub-zero temperatures in Goose Bay for an extended period. It is suspected that the smoke was from engine exhaust ingested by the cabin air conditioning system when the engine was shut down. The throttle cable was cleaned and lubricated and the aircraft subsequently departed Goose Bay without further incident.
2005-12-14: UPDATE Maintenance & Manufacturing: The aircraft was parked in Goose Bay (CYYR) Saturday night cold soaked. The aircraft aborted takeoff due to the #2 throttle stuck 3/4 from idle, engine was shut down at a high power setting, and this is the point where smoke was observed. The aircraft was towed into a heated hangar the throttle was found frozen at the FCU area on the engine. Previous to coming to CYYR, the aircraft was parked outside for a couple of weeks in England. The throttle was freed up and lubricated.
