I was going through a file of photos I'd collected of various aviation incidents and mishaps - wondered whether any of you wanted to hazard a guess at "where, what and how" they ended up where they did.

Yup, no 1 is VH-ELQ that went a over k off South Stradbroke after a stray crabpot caused driver distraction,

 

no 2 is a SAAF Museum Shakelton that went down in the Sahara at night en route to the UK and eventually Oshkosh in about '94, the wreck including 4 x RR Griffons, is apparently still largely intact thanks to the remote location,

 

no 3 is a Rans S-10 that lost a wing and demonstrated some of the advantages of a ballistic chute despite a minor fire,

 

no 4 is Saudi 747 that left the runway at Medina thanks to an assymetric thrust reverser deployment.
