Incident at GANDER INTL NL (CYQX) (Aerodrome, runway or taxiway shutdown)


2014-11-18: A Swiss International Air Lines Airbus A330-300 (HBJHC/ SWR15X) from Gander, NL (CYQX) to Zurich (LSZH) aborted takeoff at 0625Z due to a cockpit indicator, which proved to be a false alarm. The aborted takeoff caused hot brakes so the aircraft could not exit the runway so runway 03/21 was closed for a short period of time. The aircraft's brakes cooled down and the aircraft departed at 0820Z.
2014-11-18: UPDATE: TSB REPORT#A13A0064: The Swiss International Air Lines Ltd. Airbus A330, registration HB-JHC, was operating as SWR15X on a flight from Gander, NL (CYQX) to Zurich. During the takeoff roll at CYQX on runway 03, the crew received a THRUST LOSS message and the takeoff was rejected. The crew advised the tower of high brake temperatures and ARFF was contacted to inspect the brakes. The runway was closed and ARFF monitored while the aircraft remained on the runway until the brakes had cooled. The cockpit indication was determined to be due to incorrect bleed air pack configuration. The configuration was corrected and the aircraft departed normally.
