70% is almost unsurvivable and usually ends badly. What a shocker.

VH-XXX you have some sick perverted fetish for death and suffering. Do sirens turn you on?? Get a grip and leave your morbid comments, accurate nor factual to yourself. Think of the families who'll read this!
Geez man, calm your farm, that didnt warrant such a reaction. Not everything is sunshine and rainbows.

Thumbs down

Take it easy Cobber.

I don't even recall editing anything and no I am not perverted about death. I can't believe I'm even writing this.

I was merely eluding to how bad burns really are and I apologise for stating the obvious.

Massive overreaction,
I'm sure most of the families aren't getting their medical updates from PPRuNe
As to survivability it will depend on whether they are first, second or third degree burns..most people can survive second degree burns to upto 70% but if third degree burns generally 50% is seen as the crucial figure...

XXX's comment is valid in my book. He may be more experienced in medical science than you would think so I do appreciate his input. I would be very interested also how survivable this accident was. I do hope the people involved will recover.

Engine failure after take off perhaps?
Not a lot of options coming off Rwy 16 YIVL.

The local Doctor, his wife and 18 yr old daughter. Seems his wife is critical. You don't expect a 210 to give in, they are a workhorse and a half.

I saw nothing wrong with VH-XXX`s comment either. And from what I remember a Medico once telling me, it is fairly accurate given rotorblades` qualification.

Almost from the horses mouth, having spoken to a good friend who was there just as it all unfolded, and his wife works with the Dr and has been involved in the hospital care etc.

Dr is not in a great way but could be worse. At least conscious and will recover although not nicely.

His wife will be lucky to survive, is very badly burned and is as you can predict.

12 year old daughter is hardly hurt at all, small burn and a abrasions and nothing obvious else except to say she wants to dive to Sydney as she does not want to fly with my friends, or RPT or in the Ambo King Air.

If and when I get facts that I can post I will do my best. This post is possibly a bit sketchy given the emotion involved in telling me.

Rwy 16 at Inverell is very unforgiving after takeoff, heavily forested with few options in the event of an EFATO and often has a tailwind component after clearing the treetops at the southern end. My wife worked with the good doc in the Inverell hospital ED before we came north, he will be very hard to replace in the community if this has an ongoing effect. Our best wishes for a full recovery for himself and his lovely wife and for the greater community of Inverell

Agree with the above post. IVL Rwy16 scares me due to the trees everywhere and I've only been there a handful of times.

News reports indicate the wife has passed away. Condolences to the family and Inverell community.
