Incident: Westjet B738 at Deer Lake on Jul 22nd 2020, flapless landing

A Westjet Boeing 737-800, registration C-GWSA performing flight WS-518 from Toronto,ON to Deer Lake,NL (Canada) with 34 people on board, was on approach to Deer Lake’s runway 25 when the crew advised Deer Lake’s flight service that the flaps didn’t extend. The crew went around and entered a hold to work the relevant checklists, however, without success. The crew consulted with maintenance, concluded they could not resolve the flaps issue, declared PAN PAN and conducted an uneventful flapless landing at a higher than normal speed.

The Canadian TSB reported maintenance replaced the faulty flap SKEW sensor #4 connector.
