Westjet Q400 nose gear collapse

Recommended Posts

Is there a Q400 pilot who can explain why nose gear doors that are normally closed down with normal gear down selection appear open?

when the PSEU sees the gear not locked it will command the doors to open.  They are electronically sequenced not mechanically.

When the gear "failed" the prox sensors would be out of position.

Thats gonna be a bugger to fix.
