The fuel lines had been replaced shortly before the accident. The Transport Accident Investigation Board considers that it is probable that a hole was formed in the new fuel line during this project, as it passed through a fire protection wall between the cockpit and the engine. The RNSA believes that fuel has either leaked through the hole in the fuel line
or air gets in there. It has obstructed the normal flow of fuel to the engine and caused a malfunction with the result that the engine lost power.
The RNSA therefore considers that there was no actual engine failure, but a disturbance in the operation of the engine due to air and / or fuel depletion due to a hole in the fuel line in
fuel distribution system between the fuel tanks and the engine, more specifically at the fire wall of the tank.
