Two Gyro Pilots Badly Burnt

Two Gyroplane pilots, an instructor and a student pilot were badly burnt in a landing accident at Echuca late yesterday afternoon. The Gyro burst into flames on landing heavily. One of the pilots died of his burns to-day.

Although this is not under RA-Aus jurisdiction, it reminds me of a badly burnt pilot I wrote about in an earlier post. See Accident Lessons, Sep. 18. (just click here)

When you go flying please consider wearing non flammable or low flammable clothing, and have a way of getting out of your seat belts quickly.
