That link now shows the plane near feet from touching the ground.
Quite astounding that nothing more serious happened.

Perimeter, what a surprise. From what I've read over the past decade or so, they must have one of the worst safety records of all 3rd-level carriers in North America. A year does not go by, it seems, without something happening. Thankfully they are usually not fatal, but not always:

I realise Perimeter operates into a large number of primitive strips, but it seems they have a fairly high rate of incidents.



Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

Is it just me or is Perimeter a bit of an unfortunate name for an airline?
Perimeter... on the edge. Hmmm...

Reminds me of Icaro in South America.

The right gear would not lock down so they chose to land gear up. Transport Canada incident summary below.

PAG 640, a Perimeter Aviation Metro with 2 crew and 8 passengers, was on approach to Runway 18 at Winnipeg after a flight from St. Theresa Point when the crew carried out a missed approach due to landing gear problems. The right main gear would not extend in the down and locked position. The crew attempted a landing with the right main gear up and possibly hoped to free the gear to extend, however, this was unsuccessful and they subsequently elected to land gear up on their second approach. The aircraft landed successfully on its belly and came to a stop on the runway. The aircraft landed between Taxiways P and Q at 1809z and all 10 occupants were evacuated and were transported to the hospital as a precaution. There were no obvious injuries and there was no fire after landing. Runway 18 was closed and it is estimated that the runway will be closed for at least one hour. Operations were switched to Runway 13. Inbound ACA 261 was delayed during the incident. Two investigators from TSB are at the site. This aircraft was involved in an unsafe gear incident the previous day at Winnipeg, as noted in CADORS 2009C0523.

From: http://www.tc.gc.ca/aviation/applica...adors/English/Query/queryframe.asp

"Narrative: PAG 140, a Metro operated by Perimeter Aviation, was on approach at Winnipeg after a flight from Island Lake when the crew elected to fly a circuit to fix an unsafe gear indication. The aircraft subsequently landed safely about 6 minutes later at 1806z. No other aircraft were inconvenienced."

Well that didn't happen this time eh?
