A Dornier 228 operated by Alkan Air was conducting a flight from Whitehorse (CYXY), Yukon to the Coffee Creek Airstrip, Yukon with 2 flight crew and 7 passengers on board.
The touchdown zone of the Coffee Creek airstrip is marked by fuel drums placed along the edge of the runway. During the landing, the aircrafts right hand main landing gear wheel struck one of the touchdown zone marking fuel drums which subsequently struck the right side of the fuselage and right horizontal stabilizer. The remainder of the landing was uneventful. There were no injuries and the aircraft sustained minor damage.
