Narrative:
The pilot was on a flight from Otrøvatnet to Klanten when he got a low engine oil warning. A check of the engine installation after landing revealed a crack in the exhaust system. This has led to heat damages and signs of fire.
The investigation has shown that it can be difficult to detect cracks in the exhaust system. To make it easier to identify this safety issue, operators must be given relevant information about the signs of an incipient crack.
