  • AAIB: Obsolete Part Caused Twin Otter Fire
    Posted by Sean Broderick 7:32 PM on Nov 21, 2010

    Interesting AAIB report (.pdf) on an February 2010 electrical fire aboard a DeHavilland Twin Otter that was traced to a recently replaced, and unapproved, reverse current relay. The repair station that did the work was cited for signing off on work that wasn't accomplished after investigators found that the part was released as "overhauled," but the manual referenced didn't contain overhaul instructions.
