Incident at Gillam, Manitoba

Summary

1996-06-18: The Canadair CL215, C-GMAK, was carrying out forest fire suppression operations, when an abnormally high oil consumption was noted on the left engine. The crew elected to cease operations and return to Thompson under a reduced power setting. Continued high oil consumption threatened oil exhaustion and prompted the crew to shut down the affected engine and divert to Gillam where an uneventful landing was made. Maintenance found a cracked cylinder on the left engine.
