2010-03-17: UPDATE Update Moncton Airport Authority (CACO): The pilot proceeded up the left edge of the runway and struck the first runway light with the left propeller. It destroyed the light and took an end piece out of the prop of about 2in x 4in. A razor sharp piece of 2in x 1in was found in the center of the runway. The runway light assembly was found in the field. An aircraft light cover was found approximately 1,500 ft further up the runway. Runway 11-29, east of Bravo was not used for 20 minutes so a thorough check could be completed.
2010-03-17: C-GOWD, Piper PA30, enroute from Moncton (CYQM) to Charlottetown (CYYG), was cleared for takeoff. The aircraft started the roll and immediately aborted takeoff and taxied back to the apron via Taxiway Bravo. The aircraft was asked if assistance was required and responded that none was required and requested that the IFR flight plan be cancelled. Moncton Flight College called to report a propeller strike. A runway inspection found metal on the runway. Nil TSB.
