This discussion forum presents an accident investigation that examines the fuel and ignition system components. However, the investigation resulted in no determination of the possible cause(s) for the engine failure. This discussion forum will facilitate an understanding and application of the relationship between reciprocating engine system components as related to an aircraft accident. This is an actual accident and you are expected to apply investigative techniques to this case study. As with many investigations, not all the information will be available to the investigator. Therefore, an investigator must apply his/her knowledge and consider other potential contributing factors, which is sometimes called taking a 360-degree view of the accident factors.

You will learn much more from participating in the investigation without any previous knowledge of the events or circumstances. But if you are familiar with the accident, or have done a little research and discovered the causes of the accident, please allow your classmates the opportunity to perform their own assessment.
