Narrative:
A Cessna 208B Caravan aircraft operated by Alkan Air, was conducting a fuel haul from Dawson City, YT (CYDA) to Coffee Creek, YT. On the fourth trip of the day, the aircraft landed short and caught the lip of the airstrip which is situated on a plateau. The right main landing gear leg bent back, causing the aircraft to veer to the right. Directional control was maintained and the
aircraft was stopped on the runway.
A maintenance crew was flown in and assessed the aircraft. Parts were ordered and the aircraft will be ferried back to Whitehorse for a complete inspection of the affected areas.
