Investigation showed that the failed ‘O’ ring was a new one and as reported, it was fitted on to the fuel manifold hose 20 hr before the incident took place. Evidences suggest that the ‘O’ ring in question had fractured during service due to preexisting damages which appeared to have occurred during fitment or assembly. A detailed analysis of the failure is presented in this report
