An Air Inuit Boeing 737-200, registration C-GOPW performing flight 3H-780 from Montreal,QC to Puvirnituq,QC (Canada) with 4 crew, was on approach to Puvirnituq when the crew selected the flaps to 25 degrees but received a flaps asymmetry indication. The crew entered a hold to work the related checklists and noticed that the circuit breaker for the trailing edge flaps indication had tripped. The flaps did not appear to be asymmetric but also did not appear to be in their selected 25 degrees position. The crew reset the circuit breaker, however, the flaps indication remained erratic. Due to that indication and strong crosswings the crew declared emergency and subsequently managed a safe landing.

The aircraft had suffered a similiar problem 8 days earlier, see Incident: Inuit B732 at Puvirnituq on Oct 8th 2021, flaps up landing.
