Plane Crash in the Hunter Valley

Recommended Posts

Dunno about that. Quite a few Lockheed Electra's lost wings in flight but it took another crew to actually see it happen in flight to give them the evidence they needed. They knew the wings were coming off and had all the planes flying at reduced cruise speeds but the reduced speeds made it more likely to happen as it was an aeroelastc thing with a natural frequency  caused by engine alignment and an incorrect C of G.  built erroneously into the design .
