On March 18, 2017, Husky Energy reported that while en route from St. John’s to the Mobile Offshore Drilling Unit, Henry Goodrich, Cougar Flight 441 received indication of a potential problem with the landing gear due to an issue with one of three hydraulic systems. There were ten passengers and two flight crew onboard.
The flight was diverted back to St. John’s and the Cougar SAR helicopter was dispatched to visually verify that the landing gear had extended successfully. Cougar Flight 441 landed in St. John’s without further incident. Local emergency crews were on stand-by at the airport as a precaution. This is the standard response to this type of event.
The C-NLOPB is monitoring Husky Energy’s continued investigation of the incident.
