2003-09-03: SGK 680, a Beech King Air 100 with 9 people on board, departed Winnipeg for Red Sucker Lake and when the flight was 12 NM northeast of YWG, the crew observed a loss of torque and loss of oil pressure in one engine. They shut down the engine, declared an emergency and returned to YWG. The flight landed safely on Runway 31. TSB has been in contact with the company.
2003-09-05: UPDATE Maintenance and Manufacturing reported that inspection of the left hand engine on LTS following an in-flight shut down revealed a failed engine driven fuel pump coupling. The loss of torque and oil pressure is the result of the engine shutting down due to fuel starvation. The aircraft is presently undergoing replacement of the engine driven fuel pump. Time on unit approximately 3500 hours.
