Incident at Winnipeg, MB


1999-09-16: C-FDMX, a Beech Travelair, was on a local VFR training flight at Winnipeg with 2 people on board. As part of the lesson, the instructor shut down an engine, but when a re-start was attempted, the engine would not start. An emergency was declared and the flight returned to land uneventfully at 2239Z. The reason for the problem is not known. OPI - Maintenance and Manufacturing UPDATE M. & M. advised that the Operator reported that the propeller did not unfeather because the unfeathering link on the propeller governor became detached. The operator is investigating to determine how this occurred (i.e. cotter pin worn through or left off).
