Cayman B733 at Grand Cayman on Sep 13th 2016, could not retract gear leads to red faces
Last Update: September 16, 2016 / 17:36:25 GMT/Zulu time
A replacement Boeing 737-300 registration VP-CKW reached Miami with a delay of 90 minutes.
The airline reported that the gear pins were still installed in both left and right hand main gear during departure of the aircraft. The chairman said: "Whilst the aircraft was never in an unsafe condition, as the main gears were definitely down and locked, the procedural deficiencies relating to the pins not being removed before flight are very serious." The airline reported that the aircraft was removed from service, passengers and luggage were moved to another aircraft and reached Miami with a delay of 1 hours 30 minutes.
