Summit RJ1H at Saskatoon engine fire indication
« on: April 28, 2023, 08:26:39 AM »

(pulled the audio for this one, some kind of coordination !!!)

A Summit Air Avro RJ-100, registration C-FXRJ performing flight BF-8093 from Saskatoon,SK to Kamloops,BC (Canada) with 43 people on board, was climbing through 8000 feet out of Saskatoon when the crew received engine #3 (LF507, inboard right hand) vibration indications. While working the related checklist the crew received a fire warning for engine #3, performed the fire drill and shut the engine down, the fire indication ceased. The crew declared emergency and returned to Saskatoon for a safe landing.

The Canadian TSB reported maintenance found the engine oil tank empty, metal was found on the engine's chip detector and the fuel flow divider was found cracked. The engine was replaced.
