A few more slides found in dad's collection.

Photo: John S O'Rourke Late 1959 Possibly Hobart Airport. Studying google earth I now believe this photo was taken at Adelaide airport based on the hills in the background, looking in a SE direction. The hills peter out towards Reynella. There were family ties in Adelaide at that time so could have been 1960.


Adelaide Airport Circa 1960

I remember that. Changes to engine shut down procedures followed.
And we both remember who it was, don't we?

The information is freely available on the internet, apparently due engine failure:

Aircraft was badly damaged after taking-off from Warmambool Airport - April 01, 1965

The port engine failed on take-off and pilot was forced to make an emergency landing on a nearby farm

Damage was caused to the tail, wings, fuselage, propellers and undercarriage

Flight crew: Captain H. Peers; F/O P. Tyres; Hostess J. Brook

Aircraft was dismantled on site and trucked back to Melbourne (Essendon) for repairs - April 08, 1965

It has been reported that it returned to service - August 29, 1966

Reported to have been withdrawn from service at Melbourne (Essendon) - September 02, 1966

However the official D.C.A. file on this aircraft ends - April 01, 1965

It was placed in open storage at the 'Essendon Airport Graveyard'

Cancelled from the Australian Aircraft Register - November 18, 1968

Scrapped by SimsMetal Ltd at Essendon Airport - November 04 - 06, 1969

The instrument panel was presented to Engineer L. Hess upon his retirement

This presentation was authorised by Cecil Hill, the Apprentice Master.
Or are you suggesting an auspicious accident date?

Err, intended as an "in" joke for Emeritus. I believe that you're quoting from the normally very good and accurate Aussie Airliners website, but I don't believe the captain was the gent named. It was a rather infamous accident in the Ansett ranks as the crew, well the captain anyway, having had an engine failure immediately after they'd got airborne, rushed in and managed to shut down the "good" engine.

@Dora-9

What was going on with the Captain prior to the Captain rushing in? Why?

Ansett had some very strict rules about identifying/shutting down engines, this accident was often quoted as an example of "how not to do it".

I seem to remember that the " good engine " had been causing concern the previous evening into WBL and the trouble started when the crew somehow assumed it was the engine that failed. Adding to that was the throttle was retarded prior to identification/shutdown drill being carried out thereby creating false physical cues.
Another step on the way to creating the excellent SOP's that AN had.

I know the FO (Tyers correct spelling) involved in the DC3 crash in Warnambool.

Previous night one engine was causing concern on the leg down.

Other engine failed on takeoff the next morning.

FO was heads down hand pumping the gear up when the captain shut down the wrong engine without going through any confirmation procedures at all.

Too late to restart, aircraft started to buffet. All happened very quickly.

Give my regards to everyone there if I am not too late. I spent a month or so there in 2002. A couple of days were in a room next to where the chopper landed. Could not see it though s the pulled big shutters down every time.
There are worse places to spend your time.
