Accident: Near Embleton Lake, MB. Lat 57.15N, Long 95.30W. 09-Aug-1983. The pilot and engineer/passenger were proceeding to an outpost camp to do some fishing. Just before landing they experienced an electrical failure. The next morning they could not trace the problem and decided to return to their main base for repairs. While enroute, poor weather was encountered and·they were forced to return to the outpost camp. Just after turning back, smoke started to come from under the instrument panel and a short time later, flames were seen coming from under the lower engine cowling. A successful forced landing was carried out and the aircraft was taxied to shore. The aircraft was entirely consumed by fire with the exception of the wingtips and tail section. As a consequence the investigation was unable to determine the cause.
