One for all of those Bonanza drivers out there.



GB making a pass down the strip for the photographer. Whereabouts?

Taken at Linga in the heart of the Mallee. The DSE bases it's fire fighting operations here during the fire season. After spending a week or two at Linga resort ,the water buffalos in the background start to look real attractive!

Got these on email a while back with associated story.

I think it was 2200 feet which morerealistic however the damage shown is convincing enough.This was a bird strike from a Sandhill Crane while the Beech Baron was doing 185 knots at 22,000 feet. BTW, a Sandhill is larger than a goose.The flight instructor was killed but the pilot while injured was able to land the aircraft (Beech Baron) safely, certainly a sobering encounter.

Ummmm, no it wasn't a birdstrike. That damage was done by a main gear leg of a Cessna 185 travelling the opposite direction.

Heck, that was a nasty accident, its amazing that anyone survived - I hope the Baron driver bought a lotto ticket as soon as he could!

With no disrespect to anyone at all, I had a smile at the wording in the accident report:

The Beech pilot observed a dirt airstrip near his location, and he made a precautionary landing.
(Why was that? Just in case his aircraft was no longer airworthy? Understatement of the year?)

An interesting side note is that the Baron involved in that midair was the Baron used in filming of Airport 75 which you may recall had the Baron colliding with the 747.

Anyone else see the Dak on finals in slackie's posts #1636...I understand everyone's eye is drawn to the A36 and a few sick fecks to the Cessnas but no one saw the Dak?

Pretty strange bird that makes a symetrical gash in the roof like that. What happened to the other aircraft involved?

"Didnt Buddy Holly perish in a Bunanza?"

Yes, indeed he did. The formula for achieving a similar outcome is simple.

1) Load 4 people in a late 50's vintage V-tail Bonanza: Buddy Holly, Ricky Valance, The "Big" Bopper, and the pilot - ie it was most likely overloaded.

2) Take off at night into a snow storm.

Didn't make it - probably no big surprise!

They shoudda taken the bus.

Re Buddy Holly's death.
I thought the night was clear and moonless. There was snow lying on the ground but not falling.
The fact that the aircraft hit the ground about a mile and a half off the end of the runway suggested Somatogravic (sp?) effect.

There was light snow falling with strong wind gusts - no moon - and the officl cause was 'pilot error'. Would be now listed as 'human factors.'
