Pilot critical after light plane crash

Another Jabiru? What is going on? This one had more serious consequences, with injuries to those on board. The cause is not yet known, so we shall wait and see.

Update - looks like the second incident involved a Cirrus, rather than a Jabiru. Which makes me feel a bit easier about my Jabiru checkride next Wednesday.

Update 2 - My checkride has been postponed while the Jabiru goes away for an upgrade.

Update 3 - looks like the upgrade was to the cooling system to prevent the engine overheating. Not failing, merely overheating. And what happens when the engine overheats? It damages itself and then fails. None of these events are related. Not much.
