2011-04-05: UPDATE TSB: A11A0010: The Skylink Express INC flight SLQ321, a Beechcraft 1900 (registration, C-GSKW), was on approach to Halifax airport when none of the gear lights would illuminate after gear was selected down.

Maintenance secured the socket and the lamps function was tested. The aircraft was returned to service.
