Incident at 70 NM E of Winnipeg, MB


1999-02-10: ACA 100, a B767, was enroute from Vancouver to Toronto at FL 410 and 70 miles east of Winnipeg, when the crew advised that they had a "major electrical problem." They requested descent to FL 370 in an attempt to start the APU. The a/c levelled off at FL 370 and it was eventually handed off to Toronto ACC with no further details concerning the status of the electrical system. OPI - Maintenenace and Manufacturing (PNR to relay to regional company PMI) UPDATE TSB reported that the crew observed the right generator trip off-line. The crew descended to FL 370 and started the APU. The flight continued to Toronto and after landing, maintenance found that there was a fault in the right internal drive generator (IDG). There had been a slight electrical odor in the rear galley about 2 hours before the generator failure.
