The stunningly-beautiful Beech 17 Staggerwing VH-UUV on a very flat and low approach to runway 17 on Saturday 18th February 2006. The engine spluttered when the pilot opened up to arrest the sink. Black smoke issued from the exhaust and onlookers ducked. The engine caught and lifted the beauty over the fence to touch down on the displaced threshold. A fair old whack of starboard rudder is seen.
