Stunning! Incredible to see the 'frail' wheel structure withstood the impact, held the aircraft and remained 'strong enough' to maintain sufficient integrity during the rescue to stay in one piece!

It's better to ask a stupid question during training, rather than make a REALLY stupid mistake later on!

The article says ultralight, in which Australia isn't alone in calling it that. Here in the U.S., that particular model would be classified as a Sport class.
Anyhow. very lucky for all involved. Nothing was mentioned about the engines losing power, so perhaps it was overloaded?
