I'm sure Geoffrey Thomas will be able to tell us exactly what happened, though I suspect a faulty flux capacitor."
Are you sure Taily,
I thought it was the hydrochloric fossilator

The real reason will never be known because once the hydrochloric fossilator is exposed to salt water it dissolves and thus cannot be blamed as the fault.
I believe Chinese made hfs have a salt water resistant coating.

Typical West Australia humour on this one. Having lived there and with Australian helicopter and fixed wing licences I can tell you this is just a story for next weekends barbie. From what I hear it was a hangar queen that suffered an engine failure in the warm waters off Perth. Another space left for a single in Jandakot.👍😀

I checked that with a Shanghai born Friend of mine, name of See Ling Fan, who works as a LAME here in South Aussie.
He confirms your post but told me that since the flare up of the disagreement between 'Can'tberra' and the PRC, the Chinese made hydrochloric fossilator is no longer available.

Drat that CCP. They really are flexing the penile power muscle regarding free trade.
Oz should deny them imports of some of those complex valves other people talk about.
