  1. They have also noted that engines 1,2,3 are 0 time engines and #4 has 800 hrs. What ever the course they clearly had there hands full towards the end unfortunately.
  2. The NTSB preliminary report is out and what they are looking out is the bad mags and if the weather (Rain) the night before contributed to that. For the go around the problem engines hat to be turned into the wind. The start on final the aircraft was only 300ft up with gear down and flaps up to limit drag. The aircraft struck the approach lights 1000ft before the runway then contacted the ground 500ft before the runway then veered towards parked cars and deice tanks.
  3. The Runway clearance lights before the threshold.
  4. Sure enough with the hot dry weather in S.E.Qld the fires are back and Seats were operating out of Moogerah dam. Apart from staying out of there way it was good to watch.
  5. Unbelievable. The B17 my son and I was looking through in may this year at the lyon's air museum open day was 909.
  6. Well done looked like a great event. Good turn out and vlog.
  7. They have done fuel testing and it all checks out there. The B17 can remain in the pattern with three engines and continue flight operations I can only speculate losing more then one engine would be quite difficult. It looks like now they are turning there attention to the radio conversations with the ground and aircraft and weather the engine was on fire going by what was said during radio calls.
  8. Lucky to have looked threw one at the lyon's air museum when they had a open day in may.
  9. A Collings foundation B17G crashed during a joy flight. The B17 had number 4 engine troubles after takeoff but made it back to the airport and crashed just after touching down. There was 10 plus 3 crew. The crew were highly experienced with the B17. Big shame nevertheless... 😞
  10. I hope these guys are ok. https://m.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=311603979720385&id=100026123560967&set=gm.10162147269320413&source=48&refid=18&_ft_=qid.6709594814348683561%3Amf
