Incident at ST. JOHN'S INTL NL (CYYT) (Aerodrome, runway or taxiway shutdown)


2015-06-03: UPDATE: TSB Report#A15A0026: The Jazz Bombardier CRJ 705 (registration C-GDJZ) aeroplane enroute from Halifax (CYHZ) to St John's (CYYT) was on approach to landing when, on gear down selection, all hydraulic pressure/quantity was lost on the # 3 system. The crew conducted a go around with the gear down and declared an emergency due to lack of nose wheel steering and loss of some braking. The aircraft landed safely, stopped on the runway and was towed to the gate. There was a loss of fluid on the runway which was closed until it was cleaned up. Maintenance replaced a broken hydraulic hose.
2015-05-19: At 1540Z, a Jazz Bombardier CL-600-2D15 (C-GDJZ / JZA8992) from Halifax, NS (CYHZ) to St. John's, NL (CYYT) conducted a missed approach indicating hydraulic and landing gear issues. Flight declared an emergency and requested Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting (ARFF) standing by. The aircraft's hydraulic problem caused a failure of the landing gear to deploy and subsequently had to be manually pumped into position. In addition, braking ability of aircraft may have been affected; pilot indicated that half of braking capability was available. The aircraft landed at 1600Z and had to be towed off runway due to lack of steering and braking. The resulting loss of hydraulic fluid on the runway caused Runway 11/29 to be closed until the runway surface could be cleaned.
