Channel 7 (remember this is the media) are reporting a loss of power resulting in a few broken bones and back injuries so not great but could have been a lot worse!

Looks like they have done very well pulling off a low level, low airspeed emergency.

Get well soon chaps.

Any truth to the rumour posted on prune that the cause was too much air in the fuel tanks?
