Incident at TRENTON NS (CYTN)


2010-08-17: UPDATE Maintenance & Manufacturing: It was reported that upon landing the pilot experienced what he described as a nose wheel shimmy that caused him to go off into the grass off the runway. After he came to a stop he noted that the oleo was flat. The pilot noted that it had been a hard landing. The aircraft was pulled out of the grass and into the hangar next to the terminal where it was secured. Further examination revealed that not only was the oleo flat, but the lower firewall was buckled and there is a sheered rivet on the seam. The carpet was pulled back and both floor areas beside the centre console were slightly buckled. Arrangements have been made for a more thorough evaluation of the damage. The aircraft remains in Trenton NS. Flight operations are investigating.
