2001-08-21: At 13:12Z the crew of KBA201 reported to the CARS Operator at Nanisivik that due to onboard fuel problems they were diverting to Nanisivik. The aircraft landed there without further incident at 13:28Z. The 200 series Beech had departed Iqaluit for Resolute Bay and was at cruise altitude when the crew diverted.
2001-08-28: UPDATE TSB reported that the Beechcraft King Air 200 was performing a Medivac from Iqaluit to Resolute Bay. Approximately 100 nm out of Resolute Bay, the left engine began to surge with rapid fluctuations in torque, fuel flow and N1. Shortly after, the right engine began to show the same symtoms. The aircraft was diverted to Nanisivik and the crew declared an emergency. As power to the engines was reduced during decent, the surge and fluctuations stopped. The remainder of the approach and landing was uneventful and the engines ran normally during taxi. The cause of the engine abnormalities is not known.
