Cessna 210 Accident Mt ISA
 
Cessna 210

Anyone know the rego ?

wishiwasupthere 26th May 2019 11:59

I donít want to put the rego here in case iím wrong, but flightaware shows a C210 thatís been operating out of Mount Isa over the past week. Based on the registered operator, probably doing mag survey.

There is actually two of them there, both 210s I think, doing survey work, I was chatting to them a few days ago... very sad. One I think was SUX but I can't remember what the other was...

Fly safe.

Confirmed in media VH-SUX.
Sadly 2 POB and 2 fatalities.

Early rumour say it may have shed a wing... :sad:

In-Flight wing seperation seems to be pretty much confirmed. 12,000hrs but that's not a heck of a lot for a C210!

RIP and condolences to all those affected.

Well done ATSB.

Good point Hugh, will be interesting should this section be part of single engine SIDS criteria.

Would the installation of wing tip fuel tanks had an impact ?

i remember years ago some of the ex-Airnorth ones had somewhere close to 20k. Wonder if IDZ is still flying?

The single engine Cessna SID's program (yes has spar/wing inspection requirements) is for non modified aircraft.

That does not mean Supplementary Inspection Documents are not applicable to modified aircraft - just the ones produced by Cessna are not applicable.

I assume an IO-550 with a Black Mac, tip tanks and a stinger would be some of the modifications incorporated.

the reg is certainly still in use, and attached to a 210

Is this not something serious enough that all 210ís should be grounded till they find out if this was from a unique failure to this aircraft? Plenty of 210ís out there with at least that many hours and it would have had sids itís doing commercial operations.

She certainly is, and flying well, IFR and all.

Only 12,000 hours but 6000 of those have been smashing around at low level doing surveys. Seems like a lot of punishment on those spars.

The aircraft in question had been modified,possibly more relevant is that the wings had been modified - not by Cessna, so the Cessna SID's are not applicable.

Many hours in many 210’s. What was the last model built the R? 1986 (yes to lazy to Google...).

Fact is any 210 flying is a minimum of 25 years old and more realistically 30-40+++.

Just like many others... wing separation no matter what type is scary... as a pilot unless your in a Cirrus you are FARKED!

even in a Cirrus, unless you're quick to the draw, you're done. The airplane's reaction to a wing separation (unless it's a partial one) is sudden and violent, by the time most of us would have our wits about us, the speed would be well above the CAPS deployment envelope
