Accident at DELORAINE MB (CJJ4)
2001-08-08: UPDATE Maintenance and Manufacturing reported that the engine lost power and the forced landing caused substantial damage. Once the aircraft is recovered from it's current resting place, the engine will be sent to a shop independent of the overhauler, for analysis of the cause of the loss of power.
2001-08-03: UPDATE TSB reported that the Air Tractor AT-401 was preparing to spray a field with Pyrinex 480 following a fifteen minute transit from the operator's base. During a turn to commence the first spray run, the Pratt & Whitney R1340 engine gradually lost power and the pilot was unable to maintain altitude and airspeed. The chemical load was jettisoned and the pilot carried out a forced landing in a swampy area of the field. The pilot was not injured and the aircraft sustained substantial damage.
2001-08-02: C-FJBY, an Air Tractor AT-401, had just departed a private airstrip near Waskada, MB to conduct spray operations and had been airborne for about 15 minutes when the a/c experienced a loss of power. The pilot released his load of insecticide (Pryinex 480) and force-landed in a field. It was reported that the a/c experienced substantial damage in the landing, but the pilot was not injured. TSB is looking into the occurrence and more details will be available.
