2016-07-12 Air Georgian Beech 1900 nosegear collapse at Calgary


The aircraft was damaged when its nosegear collapsed on landing. All on board remained unhurt.

The Beech 1900 departed Lethbridge in the morning at 05:33L on a scheduled regional commuter flight on behalf of Air Canada Express as flight AC 7212.

About 05:58L when the aircraft was descending below 10000 ft., the pilots redioed they experienced problems extending the nosegear.

A fly-by at low altitude to allow a visual inspection of the gear status confirmed the apprehensions when the nosegear was observed not fully down.

At about 07:05L the flight discontinued the holding and made an approach to runway 35R with airport fire service on standby.

The aircraft made a normal touchdown but as the nose was lowered, the nosegear gave way and dropped to the ground scraping the runway surface, trailing smoke until it came to a stop abeam taxyway „Delta 4“.

All on board remained unhurt and were able to evacuate via the normal passenger exit.

Damage to the aircraft is expected to be significant.
