Am I the only one who is concerned by the fact the crew put the aircraft into a position where the rain was so heavy it snuffed out the fire?
yep no doubt.

I wonder because here in PNG there is a company that operates 7 ATR's in far more extreme weather than in Australia..... and there does not appear to be any issues arising, at least nothing heard in crew rooms and clubs and other drinking places...

Might be something with the batch that VARA got? the Hevilift ATR had an uncommanded rollback on just one engine just a few days after, I believe theirs is an ex VARA machine?

What's wrong with them?

Losing / loosing - there's a difference.

Maybe it wasnít rain? Perhaps sudden engine intake icing, followed by the activation of the deice boots lead to ice ingestion. Wouldnít be the first time thatís happened to a turbo prop (didnít it happen at a freight company a couple of years ago, a double flame out at altitude, who also did a good job at keeping it quiet?).

VA believe that the gendar of the pilot is extremely important. Itís so important that they base their cadet assessment on it.
Cadet assessment also irrelevant. Take it elsewhere Flyboy (if you must.)

I only ever flew the 600s and much preferred it over the always AOG Dash.

Could've done with a few more horses per side though. It wasn't a climber in ISA+20.
