forced landing near Gawler today

Recommended Posts

the Adelaide Advertiser is reporting:




that at about 3.30 today a light plane made an emergency landing near Gawler and that the 2 occupants, men, one in his 50s, the other his 60s, suffered minor injuries.


Does anyone know anything about this?


The main thing is they seem to be OK.

They were from Adelaide gliding club.Practicing forced landings when they were hit by a severe wind gust and where unable to maintain control.No option but to follow with a real forced landing in a paddock. I don,t know any other details: and can only speculate the engine may have been switched off? or to low and slow for power to be applied? they both are alright and thats the main thing.
