Incident at Agnes Lake, AB


1999-08-25: During a water pickup, cockpit indications warned of oil loss. An exhaust tube had separated and hot exhaust gases burned through a cylinder push rod tube. The engine subsequently lost sufficient oil to cause the cockpit annunciator light indications. OPI - Maintenance and Manufacturing UPDATE M. & M. reported that the exhaust tube on the Pratt and Whitney R-2800 engine had worked back due to two "pulled" studs and one stud that had the nut back off. The cylinder assembly was changed and the aircraft returned to service. An SDR has been filed.
