Archerfield Activity

Looks like someone has lost a bit of their undercarriage and is doing circuits. Emergency services and police on standby. Looking to come in on the grass on 04.

And a Cessna 152, or was it a 172 came to a sudden stop on its nose about 10 days ago on 04. Must be the preferred runway for quick stops

Wow, did they capture the footage of him crawling out onto the wing to unscrew the fuel caps so he could "Dump Fuel"?

An old aeroplane from Basair - like much of their training fleet. The maintenance service provider will no doubt be having a good long look at why the wheel fell off and hopefully have a look at the rest of the fleet. Makes student pilots a tad nervous.

Chance, you mean an old aeroplane like the vast majority of the GA Fleet? I'm sure they will, they're an extremely good mob that do the maintenance for BasAir and I've no doubt they'll find out the cause and make sure it never happens again if it was a result of their procedures.

Ian Aviation moving out of their hangar

My information is that Ian Aviation's hangar lease is up with AAC in April 2018 and, like most businesses here at Archerfield, do not wish to continue their association with them. They are moving from early next year out to a new hangar which has just been built at Bradfield Airfield(near Atkinson's Dam).
