  • 711 was returned to MAC? on 22 November 2004 for an engine swap. It was found to have chrome cylinder liners in the engine, which apparently are a known failure point. (Chrome liners require different rings, and are known for having ring seating / oil blow-by issues.) MAC? swapped the prime mover for one with cast liners in the power assemblies, and the unit was returned to IAIS on 31 Dec 2004.
