Travel Daily - - News -

RE­GIONAL Ex­press has wel­comed the re­lease of an Aus­tralian Trans­port Safety Bureau re­port into the in-flight loss of a pro­pel­lor above Syd­ney last year ( TD 18 Mar 2017).

Rex noted the ATSB and en­gine maker Gen­eral Elec­tric were un­able to con­clu­sively de­ter­mine the rea­son for the fa­tigue crack.

“This leads us to be­lieve that the in­ci­dent is a very rare and ran­dom event which will be largely mit­i­gated by new in­spec­tion pro­ce­dures,” Rex said.
