Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
The aircraft encountered a heavy downdraft in which the pilot reduced the engine power to slow the aircraft in anticipation for further turbulence. Having established the relevant airspeed, the pilot attempted to re-apply power but the engine failed to respond. He selected carburettor heat and attempted several times to restart the engine. The pilot subsequently conducted a forced landing 1km from the coast of Verona Sands in mainland Tasmania. The aircraft was destroyed and the four occupants survived without any serious injuries.
