Interim Factual

Summary

Interim Factual report released 20 March 2009

While passing through 400 ft above ground level on final approach, the aircraft drifted left of the runway centreline. The crew decided to go around and on applying power, the aircraft rolled and yawed left, resulting in significant control difficulties for the crew. After the crew regained control of the aircraft, they realised that the left engine had stopped. The crew completed the emergency checks, transmitted a PAN call and diverted to Wiluna. It was later determined that the left fuel tank was empty and that the left engine had sustained a total power loss from fuel starvation.
