  1. I read this was a Goose strike , it hits around 1.40 , it certainly would get your adrenaline going
  2. Very nice , thanks for sharing , the lightning around 1.20 mark is neat , well the whole video is too
  3. Wow , that's excellent , thanks for sharing, just happen to be reading Michael Collins book "Carrying the Fire " the Gemini and Saturn launches where exciting rides, brave people
  4. regarding the Revmaster (this KR2 had one ) motor and Posa carby ( dont know what carby this AC had ) maybe poor fuel system design , vapour lock , ethanol , who knows , maybe he did just simply run out of fuel , anyway it ended well for him and the public with no loss of life , very lucky outcome interesting read http://www.greatplainsas.com/posacarb.pdf
  5. it's a KR2 http://www.kathrynsreport.com/2019/08/rand-robinson-kr-2-n5391m-incident.html
  6. Maybe video from the skydivers had some cause of the overload which would explain the quick conclusion , then again maybe not , time will tell. The Swedish accident department says the right wing , the vertical and both horizontal stabilizers separated in flight, quite a break up , must of been terrifying for the poor souls on board. https://www.havkom.se/en/investigations/civil-luftfart/olycka-med-flygplanet-se-mes-av-typen-gibbsland-g8-airvan-naera-umea-flygplats-den-14-juli-2019
  7. Wow , that's some RC engine
  8. This YouTube video was taken on a older / previous flight in the aircraft that crashed ,on this flight I count 7 including camera person but may be more, hard to see .
  9. Looking at this video it is hard to see but I think the elevator / stabilator is missing in the dive https://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/national/eyewitness-recounts-horror-of-deadly-skydiving-plane-crash-in-sweden/video/5731d48185186903a84e85603e5586c5
  10. Sadly Another big loss of life, this link has a picture of a Gipps Ga8 not sure if that was the type involved, there is some video on twitter , it is a very fast impact , maybe no wings attached https://www.thelocal.se/20190714/nine-killed-in-plane-crash-in-northern-sweden https://mobile.twitter.com/AmichaiStein1/status/1150414446747107328

  12. Worst nightmare would be a chute opening in the plane , has and will continue to happen for a variety of reasons. If your lucky it will remain inside and not wrap around the tail , this video is of a premature opening
  13. Sadly ABC are now reporting 11 deaths , over on Kathryn's report it says that aircraft had a spin incedent in 2016 http://www.kathrynsreport.com/
  14. One of the pilots named in this article https://times-age.co.nz/crash-pilot-remembered/
