Beech B200C Super King Air, G-SASD


The aircraft was conducting an air ambulance flight from Lerwick to Aberdeen with five persons on board, including a stretcher patient. The touchdown at Aberdeen was normal and full reverse-thrust was selected initially. As the aircraft approached the E3 exit it started to veer to the right and the pilot became aware that it was not slowing down normally. The aircraft veered onto the grass and came to a halt after about 50 m.

When engine ground runs were performed later that day, the left engine immediately accelerated to maximum torque. The left engine Fuel Control Unit (FCU) was suspected to be faulty and was replaced.
