Google translator; (March 27/2011 Rouyn Noranda Airport QC)
An air ambulance Challenger belonging to the Quebec government passed over the Rouyn-Noranda airport for more than half past one on Sunday, unable to land safely because of a faulty landing gear.
From Kuujjuarapik, where he departed at 12 h 04, the plane that was carrying five passengers, was finally able to touch the ground without incident, about 14 h 45. There were no injuries and the aircraft suffered no damage.
"The pilot notified the service station from the airport at around 13h for an audit at its landing gear. Only after a few attempts to 1:25 p.m., the station has triggered the code red for emergency measures in view of the problem, "reported Robert Marie-Reine, director of the Regional Airport Rouyn-Noranda .
The landing gear was eventually released when the driver was making an emergency landing. "The pilot made an initial maneuver to try to remove the landing gear [to 2:35 p.m.], then he came back to see if the gear was down and the third was scheduled for the final landing. Finally, it was the second trial he has officially made its landing because the train pulled out when the aircraft was on the rear wheels, the third maneuver was no longer necessary, "said Ms. Roberts.
