Incident at FREDERICTON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
2015-04-08: At approximately 1815Z, a CANLink Aviation Beech C90A (C-GDHS) on a local flight from Fredericton, NB (CYFC) indicated to the Tower of a possible landing gear issue. A low approach confirmed that the main gear was barely out and the nose gear was fully retracted. Aircraft elected to hold to the north and attempt manual extension. At approximately 1830Z with aircraft rescue and fire fighting (ARFF) vehicles standing by on Taxiway A, the aircraft did another low approach for inspection. Tower and ARFF agreed that the gear appeared extended and the aircraft concurred that the landing gear was indicating down and locked. The aircraft landed without further incident on Runway 27 at 1840Z. One Diamond DV20 was delayed slightly in the circuit to accommodate C-GDHS. No other impact.
2015-04-14: UPDATE: TSB Report#A15A0015: The King Air 90 (registration C-GDHS) aeroplane was practising single engine approach and missed approach procedures at 7000 feet altitude. When the gear was selected down, there was no green gear safe light observed. The gear selector could not be selected up and the relay breaker was popped and would not reset. The aircraft descended and flew by the tower for a gear inspection. The tower confirmed the gear was not down. A manual extension was performed and three green lights were observed. The aircraft did another fly by with the tower stating the gear appeared down. The aircraft landed with ARFF on standby without incident. Maintenance could not reproduce the failure during examination.
