Picture of the panel, I wonder if the rest of the aircraft looked as good.

This was a scheduled passenger service with 9 passengers in a ME turboprop aircraft that ran out of fuel! With some piloting skill and lots of good luck no one died or even got injured. The organisation that operated this aircraft and under whose watch this happened then goes out to the aircraft, drains an unrecorded amount of water from the tanks, checks it out and calls CASA who say sure, take off from the highway and take it home, we’ll look at it later. On a Saturday.

I personally would have thought quarantining the aircraft until an on-site CASA visit occurs might be warranted.
