N1 Posted November 3, 2004 Report Share Posted November 3, 2004 Mystery mechanic behind chopper crash, report says Last Updated Mon, 01 Nov 2004 19:50:34 EST HALIFAX - A badly tuned engine is the likely cause of last year's Sea King helicopter crash, but records showing who was responsible have mysteriously disappeared. That's the conclusion of a report released Monday by the Directorate of Flight Safety, the air force agency that investigates aircraft accidents. The report says mechanics incorrectly adjusted one of the Sea King's two engines, but it's not known who. The crash happened in February of last year. The aging helicopter lifted off the deck of HMCS Iroquois shortly after it set out for the Persian Gulf to take part in the U.S.-led war on terrorism. Just after takeoff, the chopper crashed back onto the deck of the destroyer and rolled on its side. Two of the Sea King's four crew members were slightly injured.
