Incident at Calgary, AB


1997-11-21: ABL 602 departed Calgary for Kelowna with 11 people on board and shortly after, the crew advised ATC that the a/c was experiencing a problem with the right engine. The crew decided to shut the engine down and return to Calgary, where the a/c landed safely on Runway 34 with CFR on standby. OPI - System Safety UPDATE Shortly after takeoff, the right engine began to lose oil pressure, and when the caution light illuminated, the crew decided to shut down the engine.
