Turbine Ag plane down at LTV

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

How lucky is this ferry pilot.

Departing YLTV for NZ on a ferry flight and had an engine failure just after departing LTV.

Survived the forced landing which probably may not have if he was over water in the Tasman.

You can just about bet on it being a glitch with the ferry tanks system. Plenty of fuel to burn. Luckily it didn't. Nev

You would almost put money on it Nev

im guessing the hopper is the ferry tank.

Lucky Boy is all I can say as a couple of hours in it would be in the drink in a very unforgiving Tasman sea.

Had a look at this Piper Brave last year whilst it was being restored and the PT6 installed, such a shame to see it like this.

Good job by the pilot.
