Incident at WINNIPEG / JAMES ARMSTRONG RICHARDSON INTL MB (CYWG)
2003-02-25: CAV 7527, a Saab 340, was enroute from Winnipeg to The Pas and was approximately 65 miles northwest of YWG when the crew requested clearance to return. The crew reported shutting down the starboard engine. Airport Firefighters responded. The aircraft landed safely on Runway 13 at 1427Z. TSB to update.
2003-02-26: Maintenance and Manufacturing advised that the aircraft had a defect on the Bleed Air System and that the Bleed Air Leak Indicator was illuminating. The affected side was MEL'D in accordance with the required maintenance procedures, which call for a disabling of the bleed air valve. The aircraft was placarded and returned to service. While in flight, the light illuminated again. The crew secured the engine in accordance with the checklist. The problem is with the Bleed Air Leak Detection System, which was shorting out and allowing for the light to go on even though the Bleed Air Valve was closed and no air was flowing through the system. The parts have arrived and the aircraft will be repaired in the next day or so. The company will advise SAAB aircraft to add the disconnection of the leak sensing system to the 'M' Procedure for the affeccted MEL procedure.
