  • 16.11.1990: Minor damage at Jandakot Airport, WA –
    Departing aircraft reported foreign object on runway. Object was traced
    to VH-SYM. Pilot had flared improperly during landing, which caused the
    tail to contact ground, and resulted in tie-down ring being broken off.
  • 5.2.1995: Substantially damaged at Bunbury Airport, WA
    during flight training – The pilot reported that after landing, he
    noticed that the aircraft was not slowing down as he applied the
    brakes. The pilot shutdown the engine and applied full right rudder as
    a crash was imminent. The aircraft hit the grass and slid sideways. The
    port wing struck the fence post on the aerodrome boundary fence. The
    aircraft swung around and it came to rest on the gravel verge beside a
    two lane road with the starboard wing blocking one lane of the traffic.
    The pilot evacuated the aircraft and he noticed that the wind sock was
    indicating a tailwind of 20 knots.
