  1. Other than the distances not being correct most of that report is factual, even the photo is correct, surprisingly.
  2. He wasn’t mustering. More I won’t say as there is talk of some sort of an investigation. I can say there was strong gusty southerly winds at the time. Pilot and plane all legal and above board and was witnessed by the property owner who got him out of the plane. The RFDS used one of our strips as it was easiest to access from the property it happened on. I must commend the RFDS on their professionalism, you don’t really know how good they are until you are involved.
  3. 100% correct. A quick scan of p’s and t’s every few minutes is about it. I’ve only used Cessna’s and Drifters for mustering and both types have told you they are not happy well before stall. I’m still trying to work out what these mythical “mustering planes” are. Are they some special model or special order aircraft or something?
  4. A young pilot is fighting for his life after his plane crashed on a remote Queensland farm on Monday morning. The 25-year-old man was flying an ultralight plane at a property near Isisford, a small town about 100 kilometres south of Longreach. The man suffered critical head injuries as well as face and leg damage when the plane went down before 9am, a Royal Flying Doctor Service spokesman said. He was airlifted to the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital, landing before 2pm.
  5. @Returned with a 1 on the end of my name. Couldn’t sign in, wouldn’t recognise my password or email so I got the shits and reregistered. So hello again
