"20/03/1948 - starboard engine VH-AVT failed at 13,300 ft whilst on survey over Mt Hotham Feathering Top area. A wrist pin broke and caught between the webs of the crankshaft. Result of the sudden stop can be seen on the prop splines on the crankshaft. Notice the small pieces that were pistons, conrods etc." Photo: Tom Carpenter Collection (CC-0030)
