Yesterday's accident was 37 years to the day since the Advance Airlines tragedy

Last year we visited the DFO and parked next to the northern car park fence. A King Air landed on RWY 27 and rolled through at high speed. We were alarmed at how close he was to the fence.

What if a loss of directional control?

Interim report has been published, CVR wasn't operative unfortunately.

That examination found that the cores of both engines were rotating and that there was no evidence of pre-impact failure of either engine’s internal components.

There is also word of allegedly contaminated fuel delivery out of a new truck.

You mean a rumour, as opposed to what's been reported?

Should be interesting.

Exclamation Fuel?

One would hope that the fuel truck and its contents were isolated and tested immediately after the event. But if that happened, why no mention of it in the interim report?

Also, the abnormally long take-off roll could indicate that the engines were not developing full power.

Certainly a line of enquiry that needs some focus ...

I thought about this. Not knowing the 200, wouldn't that show on the gauges?


I wonder what the take off weight was? They were on a golf trip.

Question Loading?

I believe the B200 is nominally a 12 seater plus luggage, so it would be surprising if pilot plus four golfers, even with lots of gear, would exceed MTOW. But that will obviously be a line of enquiry for ATSB.

The facts reported to date just leave a big puzzle which will require a lot of effort to solve, especially now that the CVR has been found to have stopped recording anything after a flight on 3 January 2017.

Flap settings were wrong, which may explain the longer takeoff roll.
