Incident at SAINT JOHN NB (CYSJ)
2015-08-24: Update from Maintenance & Manufacturing: On final approach into Saint John, NB (CYSJ), the crew selected gear down and did not hear the gear extend, as well the gear in transit light did not illuminate. The crew confirmed that both mains were not down and the landing gear relay circuit breaker had popped. The crew contacted CYSJ radio and advised they were breaking off the final approach to deal with an issue that had come up. It was decided the best option was to head back to Halifax, NS (CYHZ) for maintenance. The checklist was followed for manual gear extension, the gear was pumped down until 3 gear down were confirmed and the in transit light was cleared. The crew completed the manual gear extension checklist, reported to air traffic control that the gear was down and locked and that no emergency was required. A normal landing was executed and the aircraft taxied back to hanger for evaluation by maintenance. After trouble shooting was carried out by maintenance is was determined that corrosion on the canon plug on the landing (LDG) power pack motor was at fault. The canon plug was cleaned. As a precaution the LDG relay was also inspected and cleaned. Multiple gear swings were completed with no further faults indicated. Aircraft was returned to service.
