2005-03-08: UPDATE TSB reported that while en route from Winnipeg to Churchill, the crew of a Keewatin Air Beech King Air 200, C-FCGT, noticed the #1 engine oil pressure reading zero. The crew conducted a precautionary shutdown of the engine (P&W PT6-60) and requested a diverson to Thompson. The aircraft landed safely with emergency services standing by. The zero oil pressure reading was traced to a popped circuit breaker which was believed to have been pulled prior to the flight during a maintenance action.
