Sounds interesting..........

RatsoreA 9th Dec 2018 03:57

Interesting indeed
 
I saw VH-ODI for sale recently somewhere for a mere $500k. I guess that the sale price will have to be marked down somewhat now...

Flight Radar track is just as interesting...

FR24 showing an approach and very low go around on 18, followed by a low circuit to land. Wouldn’t have liked to be on board if the props were bent like that in the final circuit. Were there any passengers?

They are the most bent props I have seen - No flap?

Wheels up on the first approach?

compressor stall 9th Dec 2018 06:37

Can you bend a king air prop with the wheels down? Does the wingtip hit first?

The Banjo 9th Dec 2018 07:03

I think the prop modification is called "Q" tips but that's not how you are supposed to get them...

Not sure if there were any pax.

The FlightAware track is interesting...VH-ODI have a look. Tracks straight in for 18 but doesn’t get below 2000’, not visual I guess, climbs back to 5000’, does the instrument approach down to what Flight Aware shows as 50’, goes around and makes a very tight circuit back onto 18....

"Q" being for Quiet - bet it was anything but!

Hardy had a less extent - Q Tip mod in Darwin years ago on a Titan, but had a bit of gravel rash on flaps(one more than other from memory) as well.

A Navajo touched its prop tips on the Birdsville runway causing similar damage when it tried to land wheels up and then did a circuit to land with the wheels in the correct position, 4/7/16.
