Fortunately with minor injuries to the occupants. The aircraft is VH-QOZ, recently restored and ex N804WP, ex WP804. Cannot trace that it ever had a UK civil registration. :( http://www.goulburnpost.com.au/news/local/news/general/plane-down-near-goulburn-two-hurt/2436570.aspx

Apparantly the plane is totaled and being parted out. The embarrassing aspect of the accident is that the pilot flies for the national airline. ;)

So he flies for the National airline. Whats embarrasing about suffering an engine failure?

Looks like if he had a nice bit of grass to land on everything would have been o.k. but that ground looks really rough.

I have inside knowledge of the pilot which it would not be fair to publish here, you can PM if you like. ;)
