TIMMINS – The Transportation Safety Board of Canada (TSB) are deploying a team of investigators to Timmins, Ontario, where a Beechcraft King Air 100 landed with the landing gear up.
A Air Creebec twin-engine Beech A100 enroute to the Victor M. Power Airport in Timmins was forced to make an emergency landing on Friday afternoon.
The Air Creebec plane’s landing gear did not fully engage on landing. Witnesses say that the landing gear doors on the Beech A100 were open, but the wheel assembly did not come all the way down.
The TSB will gather information and assess the occurrence.
