Not another one.

Most will remember the last YAK accident off Stradbroke Island.

Unlike the 2008 flight this one appears to be a private flight according to the news story.

Apparently the main portion of the wreck has been found, along with the unfortunately deceased pilot.

The "Previous One" has a Coroners Court finding, which is available on line...https://www.courts.qld.gov.au/__data...r-20131004.pdf

Don't see that the aircraft is to blame there..

The "Current One"....no idea, but for me, I'll wait for the report.

However both cases both tragic and sad.

Guys, I've attempted to search online for the result of the medical negligence matter between the doctors and the "widow" but cannot seem to find a result... Does anyone know whether the matter went to trial?

No-one thought to mention the possibility of FOD jamming the controls, for example, and instead seemed towards steering to this assumption: "The evidence at the inquest was that the plane was in good mechanical condition having just recently received a new engine and a new propeller."

Pg 14 suggests that they did consider FOD?
