Departure airport:
Destination airport:
The aircraft had been operating off the strip for about two and a half hours, and was on its fifth flight since refuelling. It became airborne at the same point as on previous takeoffs, but shortly after takeoff encountered 'sink'. The pilot was unable to prevent the aircraft colliding with the fence at the end of the strip and touching down in the next paddock. He applied reverse thrust, which reduced the effects of subsequent collisions with further fences and a set of cattle yards. Conditions had been calm up to the time of the accident, and the pilot was certain that there was no power loss.
