Saab-Scania SF340B, G-LGNI
When landing in a strong crosswind on a slush covered runway the nosewheel steering system did not operate and, initially, the power levers could not be moved into the beta range. When the aircraft decelerated to taxi speed the nosewheel steering system operated normally. It is probable that delayed closure of the mainwheel weight-on-wheels switches caused both problems.
