Well, if they haven’t located it, there’s a good possibility it could be on a house :/ The flight path may not be over houses, but if the propeller was spinning, it could land somewhere completely different.
If it was a house I’m sure we would know. Definitely would of done a lot of damage falling from 6,000 feet + the RPM it was spinning at. These Dowty propellers are quite large.
The propellor has been found by a police helicopter! It was in bushland next to a residential area in Revesby Heights.
The propellor was winched by a police helicopter to a nearby oval to be transported to Bankstown Airport for examination. The ATSB is will investigate the propellor and flight data.
Rex has grounded its Saab 340B fleet until gearboxes and shafts are replaced as a precaution.
That’s the only model they have?
No, they have a few other models interestingly. They might be charter.
Rex website says they also have B1900D.
They’ll put these into passenger service i guess
Yeah my Dad was put on a Beechcraft after the scheduled Saab 340 became unavailable. Btw it’s just the 340B grounded.
That B1900 is used for Cargo flights. I live next revesby heights, so very lucky it didn’t kill anyone
Maybe it was one of the Air-Link aircraft then.
