A Cirrus SR22 crashed near Gundaroo, New South Wales, and caught fire. The four occupants died and the aircraft was destroyed by fire.
It departed Canberra Airport (CBR/YSCB) for Armidale Airport (ARM/YARM) at 14:37. As it climbed through 7500 ft up to its planned cruising altitude of 10,000 ft its groundspeed fluctuated and its track varied.
Several people at locations below the aircraft’s flight path during this time reported hearing noises that they described as a rough running or surging light aircraft engine.
Twelve minutes after take-off, the aircraft was about 25 km north of Canberra, at an altitude of about 10000 ft, when it abruptly departed from controlled flight and descended steeply towards the ground. Witnesses described the aircraft rotating in a corkscrew motion.
