Investigators in Australia have located a missing propeller which became detached from a Regional Express (Rex) Saab 340 turboprop on a flight from Albury to Sydney on 17 March.

 

The aircraft was on approach to Sydney Airport when the right hand propeller sheared off its shaft and fell away from the aircraft. The aircraft was able to continue to fly and landed safely. The propeller was later found in the Georges River National Park by the NSW Police Force Airwing.
