Incident at EDMONTON INTL AB (CYEG)
2005-03-09: KFA 272, a B727, departed Edmonton on a cargo flight to Hamilton and a short time after takeoff, the crew reported that they were unable to retract the flaps. The crew circled about 80 NM east of Edmonton and dumped fuel. They then requested clearance to Calgary, where company maintenance could examine the a/c. They did not require assistance and the flight landed uneventfully at 1408Z. TSB reported that maintenance could not duplicate the problem, but changed one of the flap actuators as a precaution.
2005-03-10: UPDATE TSB reported that the Kelowna Flightcraft Boeing 727 (C-GACU), operating as KFA 272, had just departed the Edmonton International Airport when the crew reported that they were unable to retract the flaps. KFA 272 circled 80 NM east of Edmonton to dump fuel and then requested clearance to Calgary, AB. The flap actuator, although functional for the landing in Calgary, was replaced.
