Beech 1900: Incident occurred March 19, 2016 in the Greater Toronto area - Canada

Deployment notice:

The Transportation Safety Board is investigating after an engine cowling separated from a small plane over the Greater Toronto Area last week.

In a notice posted on a government website, the TSB said it is deploying an investigator to Toronto/Lester B. Pearson International Airport following “an inflight engine cowling separation” that involved a Beech 1900 twin-engine aircraft.

The government said the flight was travelling from Toronto to Kingston, Ont. on Mar. 19 when the incident occurred. 

The aircraft was flying over Oshawa when pilots heard a noise and then saw a piece of engine cowling missing.

The flight is said to have returned to Toronto and landed without incident. There were no injuries.

“The TSB will gather information and assess the occurrence,” the TSB notice stated.
