Jurien Bay – Perth
On a flight from Jurien Bay to Perth, carrying a load of crayfish, the right engine failed. Unable to maintain a safe altitude, the pilot was forced to attempt an emergency landing 12 km north of Lancelin. All three occupants were uninjured while the aircraft and the cargo were lost.
Following complete loss of starboard engine power, probably initiated by the failure of a piston, the pilot was unable to maintain height and in the subsequent forced landing, the aircraft collided with a limestone outcrop.
