Still amazed it happened the way it did, plenty of schools, roads and houses could easily have been the unintended target.
I knew you must have been local - I've done my time around the area too, and amazing luck it landed where it did. Appears to be the ridge between Cattleduffers and River Rd?

Hi Kent,

The location you mention above was almost directly underneath the aircraft's track, however the propeller was found north in the location mentioned below.

Winds from the south would've played a part in it's final location.

A second or two earlier and I reckon Picnic Point Public School would have been hit assuming the same 800m deviation from track.

Thanks Kurt - I'd missed your post on the exact location. Much appreciated.

Lightbulb Twist shear evidence

The retrieval video showed the centre shaft with very clear signs of a twist shear - as if the engine seized suddenly leaving the prop momentum strong enough to simply shear the connecting shaft from the resultant torque.
