    Pilot killed in light plane crash near Wollongong

    "A father of two described as a family man and larrikin has been killed after his light plane encountered bad weather and crashed in bushland near Wollongong, south of Sydney.

    The body of Robert Greig, 57, was found in wreckage by a police team searching an escarpment near Austinmer, a coastal suburb in Wollongong's north, about 8:00am."

    Wedderburn where he took off from is a little airfield south of Cambelltown/Sydney and is very popular with recreational flyers but the area where he went down in very bad weather is extremely rugged, mountainous terrain.

    I didn't know him but know some of the guys from Bankstown (a General Aviation airport nearer to Sydney) and have taken part in many searches in areas such as he found himself in, also with some all too often tragic results.

    RIP.

    It reminded me of the Boeing 747 (cargo) crash in Afghanistan. Though the 747 crash was due to cargo shifting but the two are so similar (due to stalling).

    Taiwan pilots 'lost thrust in one engine, restarted the other'

    (Reuters) - The crew of a twin-propellor TransAsia plane which crashed into a river in Taipei killing 35 people had lost power in one engine but shut down and restarted the other, investigators said on Friday.

    The reason for the pilots' action was unclear but a combined lack of thrust caused the almost-new turboprop ATR 72-600 to stall soon after take-off, Aviation Safety Council officials said after a preliminary study of 'black box' flight recorders.

    The plane, which can fly on one engine, was carrying 58 passengers and crew when it lurched nose-up between buildings, clipped an overpass and a taxi with one of its wings and then crashed upside down into a shallow river on Wednesday. Fifteen people survived.

    "The airplane took off from Taipei-Sung Shan Airport's runway 10 at 10:51 hours local time and turned right, climbing to an altitude of 1350 feet. At 10:52 the master warning sounded in the cockpit associated with the right engine (nr.2) flame out procedure message. Some 26 seconds later the left hand (nr.1) power lever was retarded to flight idle. After twenty seconds the left engine condition lever was set to the fuel shutoff position resulting in left engine shutdown.
    Instead of continuing the climbing right hand turn, the airplane had turned left and began losing altitude and speed with several stall warnings sounding in the cockpit. At 10:53, the flight contacted the Sung Shan Tower controller declaring a Mayday and reporting an 'engine flameout'. The airplane then turned to the right while the crew attempted to restart the left hand engine."

    They found the body of the pilot - still holding the joy-stick.

    AirAsia jet turns back to Malaysia due to technical problem

    "AirAsia X flight to Saudi Arabia turns back due to technical problem, lands safely in Malaysia

    KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) -- An AirAsia X flight heading from Malaysia to Saudi Arabia turned back shortly after takeoff Sunday due to a technical problem, circling for hours before landing safely back in Kuala Lumpur, the long-haul budget carrier said.

    The incident came after an AirAsia plane crashed into the Java Sea on Dec. 28 while flying from the Indonesian city of Surabaya to Singapore, killing all 162 people on board. That was the first fatal accident for AirAsia, the region's top budget carrier, which was formed in 2001. AirAsia X is the group's long-haul arm."

    "Incident: AirAsia X A333 near Kuala Lumpur on Feb 8th 2015, autothrust failure
    By Simon Hradecky, created Sunday, Feb 8th 2015 19:35Z, last updated Sunday, Feb 8th 2015 19:35Z

    An AirAsia X Airbus A330-300, registration 9M-XXG performing flight D7-172 from Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) to Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) with 371 people on board, had just reached cruise level 300 about 110nm eastnortheast of Kuala Lumpur when the crew entered a hold to work the checklists on the failure of an autothrottle and subsequently decided to return to Kuala Lumpur. The aircraft burned off fuel and landed safely back about 4:45 hours after departure."

    Hi Fungus,

    This Simon Hradecky fella has got his compass bearings all mixed up. The aircraft was on the way to the middle east not the far east.
