Beschrijving:
The aircraft departed Canberra's runway 30 on a night-time training flight. Shortly after takeoff the nr.1 propeller oversped. Action was taken to feather the prop. However, the drive gear to the constant speed unit had broken, causing the feathering process to take some 30 seconds instead of the usual 10-15 seconds. The crew were worried that they would not be able to clear the hills in front. The captain decided to turn to the south, in an attempt to carry out an emergency landing in the open paddocks south of the airport. While still attempting to climb in order to avoid Mt Pleasant, the aircraft stalled. It crashed near some houses and burned.
