Incident: ATR 42-300, EI-CBK, near Dublin, 8 August 2003: Report No. 2005-014

SYNOPSIS

The aircraft was in the cruise, routing from Luton Airport (EGGW) in the UK, to Galway (EICM), when the RH engine spooled down and stopped. The crew made a PAN call to Shannon ATC. They initially considered diverting to Dublin (EIDW) or Belfast (EGAA) but these were closed due to fog. They then decided to divert to Shannon (EINN) and landed there safely on one engine. The Investigation subsequently found that the RH engine stopped because the fuel tank feeding this engine was empty. The Investigation makes six Safety Recommendations.
