I don't think it's very fair blaming Grahame for this one

Thank you Channel 10 for using my image on wide screen ... I checked the Hi-Res images and could not find a mark on the aircraft - very lucky Passengers and Crew. The Pilot on the
radio was as calm as, and they both did an excellent job landing the aircraft with one engine in the wet and windy weather.
