Whilst on the Vic in the 61/62 commission we had the mail plane Gannet lost. It seems it came diving into the ocean from a great height.I was on the whaler looking for debris and another one was supposed to have found the crash helmet with the pilots head still inside[not confirmed as far as I remember] but my question is: Was the Gannet a robust plane? it looked it from the outsiders eye,more so than the Skyraider we had. I never knew what caused the crash but I thought it had two engines so it must have been something terminal. just interested why if you can.
