Police conference on Sky say they think it's "home built". Also they say possible part found hundreds of meters away from crash site.

If you have a look at Webtrak an aircraft departs Moorabbin at 1:23 EST ... Tracks coastal down the coast and disappears in the Chelsea area ... Certainly not an engine failure inland and trying to glide to the beach going by Webtrak.

Thanks for posting FPV. We are all grown up and know the consequences of what happens when all goes wrong during what we do for a job or for fun. A picture is worth a thousand words.

I highly doubt he was gliding, if you do some quick calcs, webtrak shows a descent rate of 6000-9000 fpm and increasing. From 3000ft to impact in 20 seconds.

That to me is more likely to be a structural or medical problem.

Are you sure you're not thinking of NOJ?

Was tracking south coastal at abt 2000 ft, traffic was heading in the other direction abt 1000ft. There was a very stiff wind off the bay at the time, 20kts gusting 30 which would not have helped matters. A couple of locals did their best but nothing could be done. Traffic at YMMB pretty much ceased for the day out of respect I imagine. RIP and condolences to the family.

MEMORY ITEMS UPON HEARING NEWS OF AN AIRCRAFT CRASH.

1. Call mates who may be in the area to make sure its not them
2. Get on PPRuNe to monday quarterback the pictures put up there and taken from a news website who's producers will also trawl the interweb (including PPRuNe) to garner any conceived theory to satisfy the publics " Tell us, TELL US NOW" view of the world.

A fellow aviator has passed. He pushed the throttle open as most of us do everyday and it ended tragically. His family are hurting, so are his friends.

Just leave it.

Tag.

Registered operator of JON is from Hampton East, whereas NOJ is John Johanson's RV-4.

Thanks for the moderating tips Tag. We didn't really need them.
