The occurrence

On 2 November 2017, a Fairchild SA227-AC Metro III aircraft was conducting a repositioning flight from Gods River, MB (CZGI) to Thompson, MB (CYTH). Approximately 40 nm southeast of CYTH, the crew advised air traffic control of a low oil pressure indication on the left engine and that the engine may need to be shutdown. Upon landing in Thompson with both engines operating, the aircraft veered to the right and exited the runway. The pilot and co-pilot were taken to hospital with minor injuries. The aircraft sustained substantial damage. The TSB is investigating.
