1999-05-19: At 1508Z, FAB 732, a B737, was enroute from Yellowknife to Edmonton with 64 people on board and was abeam Fort McMurray when the crew reported that the number 2 engine had failed. They declared an emergency and CFR was on standby as the flight landed at Edmonton at 1604Z. TSB has been notified and more information will be available. OPI - System Safety UPDATE TSB reported that the crew of FAB 732 observed the starboard engine EPR and fuel flow begin to fluctuate, followed by the oil quantity rapidly decreasing. They then shut the engine down, followed the appropriate checklists and made the decision to continue to Edmonton because of the landing limits for flaps 15 degrees at Yellowknife. A preliminary post-landing inspection of the engine revealed the accessory gear box failed. The engine has been removed for overhaul and an SDR will be sent to Transport Canada.
