Rex incident YSSY

I hear Rex reduced the landing weight of a 340 today into SY by shedding a prop. Must have been entertaining for all involved.

Same aircraft had power issues and a diversion into Gold Coast on Wednesday, Flt# RXA 344.


Well done crew for bringing it home safely.

Transcript of the pilot's report of the emergency:

"768, we've just had uncommanded engine operations and then our propeller has just sheared off.

"We've lost the propeller, we've got normal controls, still able to fly, would require 16R and services on the ground.

"We should be able to conduct a precautionary landing just fine."

Wow!

They deserve a cool refreshing drink after that one.

Any reports on the prop being found?

No obvious airframe damage so looks like the prop has gone down and under the wing...luckily.

Lets hope it hasn't hurt anyone on the ground.

@Torqueman
The diversion to the Gold Coast was due weather, not aircraft related. It departed again at 7am local the next morning.

Could be mistaken but I think there were almost 3 pans with a NZ aircraft touching down just a REX declared their's with a medical.

Wait... what??

Don't think it came off over Camden looks to be further west around Lake Burragorang near Yerranderie

The plane was likely to have been above Camden in south-west Sydney when the propeller sheared off.
Passenger plane's propeller shears off in mid-flight, forcing emergency landing at Sydney

Mental anguish.

"The plane's distraught passengers were taken to the terminal at Sydney Airport after the plane landed and offered counselling."


Really?!
