Merged:Aircraft Crash - South Coast

Just caught the end of the 1700news on the radio. Heard something about a aircraft crash, I then found this.

http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2...31/2261264.htm


Never a good thing to hear happen.

RIP fellow aviator,

Stretch

A poster in the recreationalflying.com.au website forum has suggested that the pilot did a low level pass followed by a pullup, stall turn, stall and nose into the dunes. No idea if this is true but he seems convinced that is what happened.

One thing I despise with a passion, is speculation.

Let the experts determine the cause. Far more important at the moment is that a lot of people we know just lost a friend.

"....A poster in the recreationalflying.com.au website forum has suggested that the pilot did a low level pass followed by a pullup, stall turn, stall and nose into the dunes....."
Pretty tough to do a stall turn without getting the aeroplane to stop flying.
".....No idea if this is true but he seems convinced that is what happened...."
Let me guess, you could tell by the emphatic nature of his typing huh? Cheers for your input, it will thankfully be quickly forgotten.

Does anyone know the rego? The only reason I am asking is that I think it might be the one I flew in once.

corowacomet no idea who you are but you sound like a tool that I lost when working on my plane last week.

Nothing wrong with my post. It was alerting readers to an eye witness to events, that is all; and the location at which they can find this piece of information. I suggest that you might be suited to that kind of forum versus this one.

"....It was alerting readers to an eye witness to events...."
You verified that of course?
"...and the location at which they can find this piece of information..."
I would hardly call it 'information', actually just idle speculation on an anonymous forum from some two-bit RAAus pilot claiming to be an eyewitness.
".....I suggest that you might be suited to that kind of forum versus this one......"
Slagging off your source? Good move there.

Go back to sleep please and leave me alone! If you were at Corowa yesterday you were a long way from the accident!

CorowaComet,

Lay off man. XXX was just printing what someone else wrote elsewhere, and believe it or not, eyewitness reports are integral to an accident investigation.
