Incident at WINNIPEG / JAMES ARMSTRONG RICHARDSON INTL MB (CYWG)

Summary

2003-01-20: C-FRSC, a Beech Baron, departed St. Andrews for Lethbridge, and when the a/c was 15 DME northwest of Winnipeg (YWG), the pilot advised St. Andrews Tower that he had shut down the right engine. He was advised that YWG was closer and the aircraft diverted accordingly. AFF was activated and the aircraft landed safely at 1840Z. No other aircraft were inconvenienced.
2003-01-22: UPDATE TSB reported that the pilot of the Beech 95-B55 Baron had just increased power for an en route climb when the right engine sputtered and stopped. The pilot could not re-start the engine (Teledyne Continental IO-470), feathered the propeller, and diverted to Winnipeg International Airport without further incident. During the pre-flight inspection, the pilot reportedly had found two fuel sumps on the right wing were frozen and could not be drained. Contract maintenance personnel warmed the aircraft in a hangar and drained water from the fuel sumps. The fuel system was drained and purged.
