Why only one engine when both of the props were bent? Surely the second one should have been replaced as well? And if the upper IB wing skin was disbonded surely it shouldn't have been flown like that? Something doesn't add up here.

Only 1 engine was US. A damaged prop doesn't necessarily mean a damaged engine. Disbonding on the upper IB wing skin panel is very common on the early Kingair. You can easily get a EO/EA from Beechcraft or any authorised engineering company to keep flying (it's not a wet wing). It's time limited and inspections in that area increase. There also is a temporary repair in the SRIM.


The multiple punctures in the fuse were the issue. It flew to Sunshine coast on special permit with altitude restrictions.

Wouldnít have thought there would have been any problems if CASA elected to issue a one off flight authorisation, which sounds like the case.

Iíve got a fair idea who bought it if itís on the Sunshine Coast being repaired. Good on them.

Any reason why that should be a secret?

Final report out. It’s just amazing that the aircraft kept flying in that condition. Sometimes luck is on your side.

The King Air is a tough aeroplane. If this isnít an advertisement for the Hartzell/PT6 combo, I donít know what is.

Luck was indeed on his side that day, but unfortunately not back in January. RIP Dick.

There was a comment somewhere that it was patched up and flown to Sunshine Coast. Probably out there again earning a dollar with a new rego
