Incident at J.A. DOUGLAS MCCURDY SYDNEY AIRPORT

Summary

2001-01-11: TSB Update. TSB file # A01A0002: The Bae 146 aircraft was en route from Deer Lake to Halifax when the # 2 engine (Textron Lycoming ALF502R) fire warning activated. Engine power was reduced to idle but the fire warning remained active so the crew secured the engine and fired one of the fire bottles after which the fire warning stopped. The crew elected to divert to Sydney and requested that the airport fire fighters be placed on standby for the landing. The aircraft landed without further incident. A #2 engine fire warning indication incident occurred on this aircraft on 05-01-01 (A01A0001), however, an examination of the engine following that incident did not reveal any evidence of fire or faults with the fire detection system so the aircraft was returned to service. This was the second flight following that incident. In this incident, evidence of fire in the form of a melted grommet and sooting on the exterior of the tail pipe was found. Maintenance determined that a crack had developed, in the area of the #6 and #7 scallops, on the fuel manifold. An NDT inspection had been carried out in accordance with service bulletin (SB) instructions 760 cycles prior to the occurrence. The operator is re-evaluating the SB to determine whether or not the instructions and/or equipment are adequate to detect cracks in the area where they developed on this manifold. An SDR will be submitted to TC.
2001-01-08: ARN8103 BA46 enroute Deer Lake to Halifax requested diversion into Sydney due to #2 engine shutdown (failure of the #2 engine and fire indication).CFR advised and no emergency declared as crew did not see any further indication of fire. Aircraft landed safely at 2003Z in Sydney with 73 SOB. TSB Update: Due to a fire indication, the # 2 engine fire bottle was activated and the engine was secured. # 2 engine is now being replaced although no fire indication has been found. TSB Case Closed
