Turbine Otter Incident - Fort Langley

Post by pelmet »

C-GTMW, a privately operated De Havilland DHC-3T, was conducting circuits at Fort Langley
(CBQ2), BC. During the second landing, the aircraft bounced and started an uncontrolled veer to
the left. The aircraft departed the left side of the runway onto the adjacent ramp. The left wing tip
contacted a parked trailer causing the aircraft to pivot left and impact a second trailer before
coming to an abrupt stop. The aircraft sustained substantial damage. There were no injuries and
no post impact fire. The ELT automatically activated and the signal was received.

Change the title to Fort Langley, because there's a pretty significant difference between Langley (CYNJ) and Fort Langley (CBQ2).

What was the gear? Amphibs, or tailwheel? If the latter, I'm sure that it's not the first, or the last time an Otter has been ground-looped!

I had the opportunity to fly this Otter when it was US registered. Absolutely beatiful airplane.
It was on Wip 8000 amphibs then.
