    Exclamation Jabiru 2200 Engine Failure - Forced Landing on the Beach



    A partial power loss due to a Jabiru 2200 engine failure forced me to land my Alpi Aviation Pioneer 200 (CS-UPK) at low tide on an empty beach in Portugal ...
    Wonderful landing, without a scratch ...
    No. 3 cylinder exhaust valve adjuster loosened and jumped out during flight ...
    More details, pictures, video and portuguese authorities (GPIAA) official report in my blog:
