dnc 28/12/44 Gremberg M/Y at Cologne The crew of IM276, F/O Sadgrove, experienced a bad oil leak in the starboard-inner engine at 600ft after take-off and had to close it down. Later, the port-outer lost power while they were trying to climb. The propeller was feathered and they pressed on. The starboard-inner then began fluctuating and they couldn’t keep up with the stream. They wisely turned back and landed at base at 15.56hrs AA-S P/O Sadgrove 03:58
