Lilydale crash

From 7 News Melbourne: A light plane has overshot the runway at Lilydale Airport, hitting an embankment before coming to a rest at Macintyre Lane.

Only what I saw on FB & photo is very hazy due wx - couldn't make out aircraft type apart from a twin.

When I looked at the nose & windows that was my thoughts too, but I would have only been taking a stab at it.

Just saw this on FB:

UPDATE: A male pilot was able to walk from the damaged light plane after it overshot the runway at Yering.

He was treated by paramedics at the scene, and did not require transportation to hospital.

BEFORE --

DEVELOPING: A light plane has overshot the runway at Lilydale Airport, hitting an embankment before coming to a rest at Macintyre Lane.

If my hazy memory is correct this seems a fairly regular event at this airfield.

Clearly this pilot was not versed in Roger's (patent pending) Bonanza anti-lock breaking technique, no doubt required by all the rain Melbourne has had today.

Yep, that's the one. This aircraft certainly gets around or so my google search told me.

It was a little wet earlier this morning...

Weather issues notwithstanding, goodyear or cleveland brakes make a huge difference.
I used to fly two C310s and one was great, the other amazinly bad, went off rwy31 at old Brisbane airport once!
Worth the money to update if anyone has the first brand!

Perhaps the pilot landed on the "short" 850m instead of the longer 1350m runway?

I've seen this done before and it seems pilots can have the same problems as drivers on a wet surface...lock the brakes and keep them locked instead of releasing and applying again.

Roger's a bit of an agriculturalists himself, I recall.

The pilot apparently said the brakes failed. Wet airstrip, maybe fast over the fence, hit the brakes and just kept skidding all the way. Brakes failed? What an unfortunate coincidence

"Cessna 430"
"Missed the runway"
"attempted to hold down the breaks"

I mean come on Journos... On the bright side no one fatally or badly injured so we can sit around and nitpick the journalistic quality on it!

If the info in FlightAware is correct, the aircraft has been flying regularly around SE Australia for the last three months.

Brakes failed?
Yes, correct, they did fail.

They failed to stop the aircraft :-)

I remember an N reg C340 force landing into sugar cane about 10NM South of Cairns in the early 2000s due a fuel issue. Pilot bought another N reg C340 and continued his journey around the world.

I am sure I heard this guy flying out of YSBK yesterday. Was definitely a C340 and he sounded a bit dodgy on the radio re his procedures to me. If so not really surprising result.
