The ATSB is investigating an engine malfunction involving a Pilatus PC-12, registered VH-OWS, near Meekatharra Aerodrome, Western Australia, on 7 August 2017.
During the climb after departing Meekatharra Aerodrome, at approximately 0230 (WST) oil began streaming across the aircraft’s cockpit windshield. The pilot decided to return to Meekatharra Aerodrome, where the aircraft landed safely. No one on board was injured.

As part of the investigation, the ATSB will interview the pilot and gather additional information.

A report will be released within several months.
