Ravenair Traumahawk. Casualties with 70% and 60% burns reported elsewhere. Serious enough for me to be glad I invariably wear a nomex flight suit and leather gloves, even in a docile little trainer aircraft. Moggy

Rotten luck to have this engine failure, hope they recover. Moggy, I wear just the same, the suit gives me lots of pockets for my camera bits and pieces as a bonus.

Aye one dead and the last I heard the other one is still critical. A sad day indeed.
