A Pacific Aerospace CT-4B operated by the ADF’s Basic Flying Training School at Tamworth made a forced landing in a paddock near Gunnedah on June 10.
The aircraft, operated by BAE Systems Australia on contract to the ADF and other military customers, landed in the paddock at about 10.40am local time. The two crew members walked away from the successful forced landing and neither were injured.
An ADF statement said: “Safety is the most important priority for RAAF operations. RAAF aircraft are serviced and flown under a very strict and controlled airworthiness and safety system. All aircraft are under constant surveillance to ensure that they maintain the highest standards.”
The aircraft will be recovered and returned to Tamworth where an investigation into the forced landing will be conducted.
