A Nolinor Boeing 737-200, registration C-GTUK performing flight N5-950 from Churchill,MB to Meadowbank,NU (Canada) with 76 passengers and 5 crew, was accelerating for takeoff from Churchill, when the crew observed numerous Canada geese fly over the runway and rejected takeoff at about 120 KIAS. The aircraft collided with a goose and came to a stop with about 1200 feet of runway remaining. The crew set the park brake to assess the situation before returning to the apron. Upon releasing the brakes the crew noticed the brakes had seized. Emergency services were called out to inspect the landing gear and found both tyres on the left main gear had deflated due to the melting of the fusible plugs disabling the aircraft on the runway.

The Canadian TSB reported the operator's maintenance replaced all 4 main tyres and brakes and performed a high energy braking inspection.

NAV Canada reported runway 15/33 was closed for 10 hours.
