Jetstream 3202, G-BYRA
Whilst in flight, the left wheel brake pressure gauge suffered a failure which caused it to permanently indicate 2,000 psi. This led the crew to believe that the wheel brake might be locked ‘on’ during the landing. During the same flight, a failure of the pressure delivery pipe from the left hydraulic pump resulted in the total loss of the aircraft’s hydraulic systems, but only after the crew fully deployed the flaps and extended the landing gear. The aircraft carried out an uneventful landing, but without the nose wheel steering and main wheel braking systems being available, and came to a halt on the runway.
