Recent RAAF Roulette Visitor to Whitsunday Airshow Crashes in Victoria

Earlier this week a single Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Pilatus PC-9/A aircraft experienced a suspected engine failure and crashed at RAAF Base East Sale Victoria.

The two crew members of the aircraft ejected safely.

As a precaution, all RAAF PC-9/A flying operations have been temporarily suspended, while the cause of the incident is fully investigated.

The PC-9/A involved has been identified by some sources as A23-039 of the Roulettes Aerobatic Team. This aircraft was recently photographed above at the Whitsunday Airport's Grand Airshow flying as "Roulette One" by Squadron Leader Glenn Canfield.
