A short recreation of the Rex propeller separation event last Friday, based on actual ATC transmissions, and archive footage of Rex aircraft at Sydney.

Images of the actual aircraft (VH-NRX) after the event are included at the end of the video.

I just noticed that Ben Sandilands (in his "Plane Talking" blog) is advising that Rex broke air safety rules by feathering the prop after noticing a malfunction and then flew from Canberra at 8000 feet.

https://blogs.crikey.com.au/planetal...7/03/20/62116/

However on FR24 the aircraft is seen to be flying at FL17 nearly all the way to Sydney before beginning a seemingly normal descent.

The mystery deepens...

Hi Stephen

Well if FR24 is correct then REX768 reached FL17 just before Tumut and started descent from this altitude west of RIVET, so well past Canberra. I would have to say Crikey has got it wrong at least re the altitude, or have different source.

Cheer

The propeller from the plane has apparently been found by police.
It was found in bushland off the River Road in Revesby, so a bit closer to YSSY than originally thought.

Cheers

Confirmed found in the bush land between The River Road and Sandakan Road - some 700-900 metres left of track.
Winds from the south would've played a part in it's final location.

The Rex propeller was found in the position I calculated in my Tweet at 6:05pm last Friday evening.

Not quite, your dot is over Alford's Point Rd, River Rd begins left of the indicated flight path which I suspect is a mapping error, as I don't think there would have been too much lateral travel on the props flight path. Unless the River Rd reference is wrong?
