It looks like Jabbie. There are some RA-Aus registered Jabbies operated by a flying school at YBAF. If it is 1 from the flying school this will be the second one with an engine out.

 

I also saw a private owned Jabbie parked at AF the other day.

 

Glad all are OK, good outcome, excellent flying getting in that spot:score 010:

 

I see our esteemed, well informed media are reporting it as a Cessna... again:angry:068_angry.gif.cc43c1d4bb0cee77bfbafb87fd434239.gif068_angry.gif.e6e3bad802304927655e1c48b61088cd.gif

Again its good see the "Jab" fuselage is intact. They certainly are strong in that area. Glad both occupants are ok.

 

We await the reason for the forced landing.

Curiously, the more pictures of Jabs after forced landings, the more I am impressed with their fuselage design. Not sure I would be wanting to fork out the costs of engines that aren't making time regularly, but from the perspective of survivability, it looks like there isn't much better.

I think they would be more survivable if they didnt seem to have the engines die so often.

 

I am not saying this was an engine but with everyone saying how strong they are I. Would just as soon be in a plane that didnt prove that every few weeks or so.

That was some seriously good decision-making and flying, I reckon - I just measured that entire field on Google Earth and it's a bit over 450 metres at the longest axis with mature trees all around, lots of power lines, and just nowhere else to go.
