The pilots of an Asiana 767-300 have been suspended pending the outcome of an investigation after flying four hours on one engine.
The aircraft, operating as OZ603, was operating from Seoul Inchon to Saipan on 19 April with 253 owners. About an hour into the flight, they received
a warning related to the left engine. They reduced power, but the light stayed on. Instead of diverting to Japan, the crew chose to fly four hours and
land in Saipan.
Maintenance crews found metal shavings in the the engine, and a replacement had to be flown out.
