, a Piper Seneca, was on a VFR flight plan from Prince Albert to Lynn Lake with an ETA of 1815Z. The pilot called Winnipeg FIC enroute reporting an engine failure and that he was diverting to Sandy Bay at 1729Z. Sandy Bay RCMP
was advised of the aircraft's ETA. The pilot later phoned Winnipeg FIR at 1754Z to advised that the aircraft had arrived. TSB later reported that the engine breather line froze and resulted in the engine stoppage. The a/c remains parked at Sandy Bay in the open until the weather warms and maintenance can work on the a/c. TSB reported that the pilot observed the right engine oil temperature indication increase. A short time later smoke was observed in the cockpit, and the passenger observed oil streaming from the right engine nacelle. The pilot turned off the cabin heat, shut down the right engine (Lycoming IO-360), feathered the propeller, and diverted to Sandy Bay without further incident. Maintenance staff found the right engine crankcase breather line had iced up, and that the engine oil had been forced out through the propeller seal. The company is waiting for warmer weather before they repair the aircraft.
