Incident at Winnipeg, MB


1999-07-09: SGK 335, a Cessna 414 with 7 people on board, departed from Runway 13 at Winnipeg on an IFR flight to Red Sucker Lake and shortly after takeoff, the pilot observed smoke emanating from the left engine cowling. He advised that he was returning to the airport and was cleared for a visual approach to Runway 18. The flight landed safely with CFR on standby and taxied to the ramp. A post-landing inspection revealed no fire but an oil leak apparently caused the smoking engine. TSB investigators will look at the engine today with the company AME to determine the cause of the leak. OPI - System Safety UPDATE TSB reported that the left engine air-oil separator line had chafed through as a result of contact with a tie-wrap. Oil from the line had then settled on the exhaust system.
