Summary

At 800 ft after takeoff the left engine suffered a complete power failure. After securing the engine the pilot carried out a successful asymmetric landing. The engine was disassembled and the rear main bearing was found to have rotated in the case. This caused a loss of oil flow with subsequent overheating and metal contamination of the engine. The camshaft seized and failed causing loss of drive to the accessory drive train and total loss of power. The cause of the rear main bearing failure was not found.
