A Jazz Canadair CRJ-705, registration C-GDJZ performing flight QK-8992 from Halifax,NS to St. John's,NL (Canada) with 75 people on board, was on approach to St. John's runway 29 when the crew went around reporting a hydraulic and gear problems. The crew subsequently reported that the hydraulic problem prevented the gear from being extended normally, the gear was manually pumped into position, and they had only about half of the braking capability available. The aircraft positioned for another approach to runway 29 and landed safely about 20 minutes after aborting the first approach and stopped on the runway. The runway needed to be cleaned due to the loss of hydraulic fluid onto the runway, the aircraft was towed to the apron.

The return flight QK-8995 was cancelled.

The Canadian TSB reported that all pressure and quantity was lost from the #3 hydraulic system, the crew went around with the gear extended and declared emergency because of loss of nose wheel steering and some braking capacity. The runway was closed until leaked hydraulic fluid had been cleaned, the aircraft was towed to the apron. Maintenance replaced a broken hydraulic hose.
