Experimental Turbo Airvan lost
A Gippsaero GA10 Turbo Airvan was destroyed during a test flight on 4 June when it crashed in the Mojave Desert, in southern California. The two pilots on board bailed out at about 5,000ft and landed safely. According to a spokesman for Gippsaero’s parent company Mahindra Aerospace, the GA10 was an experimental aircraft that was ‘being flown in various configurations to expand the envelope’. It had taken off from Mojave Air & Space Port and crashed about fifteen miles west of Edwards AFB.
