On 2 November 2006, at 1228 Central Summer Time a Boeing Company 767-338 aircraft, registered VH-OGL, departed Melbourne, Vic, on a scheduled passenger flight to Perth, WA. During the cruise climb, the crew reported that the Engine Indication and Crew Alerting System (EICAS) message displayed 'R OIL FILTER'. The crew initiated a descent and reduced the right engine thrust lever to idle. As the EICAS message remained illuminated, the crew shut-down the right engine, as required by the checklist, and diverted the aircraft to Adelaide, SA.

The operator's engineering personnel inspected the right engine magnetic chip detectors and found no evidence of debris. They also replaced the right engine oil scavenge filter and conducted an idle leak check. As no anomalies were found, the aircraft was returned to service.
