A Wasaya Airways de Havilland Dash 8-100, registration C-FABA performing a freight flight WT-815 from Wiebenville,ON to Big Trout Lake,ON (Canada), was on short final to Big Trout Lake when just before touchdown the gear indication changed from locked and down to unsafe, the gear horn started to sound and the crew felt the nose gear retracting. The crew initiated a go around, declared Mayday and diverted to Pickle Lake,ON (Canada), where the aircraft performed a low approach to have the gear inspected from the ground, following the low pass the crew performed a manual gear extension which resulted in three greens and landed safely.

The Canadian TSB reported maintenance found two faulty nose gear proximity sensors. The sensors were replaced.
