At approximately 0915 hrs while flying a routine coastal training flight 18 miles out to sea the port engine failed, so the pilot headed back to East Sale for a precautionary landing.  After touchdown and throttling back the stbd engine, the engine surged and caused the aircraft to slew violently to port and skid uncontrollably on the wet runway and crash into a tree at the side of the runway.  Damage was extensive with both airscrews and port mainplane written off.  Pilot 410166 PLTOFF S. Matthews, Navigator 410912 PLTOFF SL Anderson, WAG 417175 PLTOFF RA Graetz and WAG 410995 SGT F. Maloney were uninjured.

Accident at Werribee Satellite Airfield.  On take off Trainee 438796 LAC A.M.

Sold by DAP at the Aircraft Remnants Auction RAAF Mallala to Mr James Woods of Maitland, SA. The wing spar was used to make a glider and the remainder was sold to Mr. Bubner of Port Wakefield, SA.  By 1967 all that could be located at Bubner's farm was a set of cowlings. This was the first Oxford towed out of RAAF Mallala after the Auction.  Significant road traffic problems were caused by the Mallala sales aircraft being towed, with their wheelbase barely fitting on the main roads of the time, forcing all other vehicles off the road. Police escorts were required from Gepps Crossing for those aircraft being towed through the Adelaide suburbs.
