Damaged components from the engine of a crashed aircraft were sent to the laboratory for analysis. Observations revealed that all the components were damaged/failed due to impact. Analysis showed that the intermediate stage bearing assembly had failed due to post accident impact. One of the 6th stage HPCR blades was found to be partially coated with a thin film of shiny brownish material. This film was found to be rich in carbon and appears to be an organic material.
