2015-09-01: Update from Maintenance and Manufacturing: On approach in to St. John's the crew selected landing gear to the down position and the circuit breaker (CB) popped and gear did not extend. CB was reset and the CB popped again. Crew decided to return to maintenance base. On approach into Gander, the gear was manually lowered as per checklist and the aircraft landed without incident.

The power pack assembly was replaced with a serviceable unit with successful function checks carried out. The aircraft was returned to service. The aircraft flew the remainder of the day with no defects reported.
