Emergency landing after engine failure, Stampe SV-4, G-AIYG, Westerschelde

Status : Closed

The pilot conducted a flight from Antwerp (Belgium) to Midden Zeeland airport (the Netherlands). Above the Westerschelde, after 25 minutes in flight at an altitude of approximately 1,000 feet, the engine failed. The pilot made a forced landing on the water, where the aircraft overturned. The pilot was unharmed.

During the investigation, the left magneto was disassembled and it was found that the insulation of the rotor had touched the pole shoes housing. The rotational resistance in combination with the damaged teeth of the flexible coupling, created the possibility that the left magneto in relation to the drive could change position.
