The second photo is the rotor segment, where it came to rest in the electrician’s yard. The lunch box, placed in shot for size reference, is about 300 mm long and 250mm high.
The rotor segment flew through the winder house wall (photo 5)..then across to the Electrician’s compound. It hit the bank just below the donga and went up through the floor / wall, out the roof and landed in the yard behind.
Photo 6 was taken looking along the “flight path”. Note the flat trajectory. The segment went under the stair stringer (upper right) – missed the cable car gondola and all the cables It hit the bank just below the donga and went up through the floor / wall, out the roof and landed in the yard behind.
Photo 7, close-up of the impact site and donga damage. Inside was an electrical foreman’s office. The, Aussie expat, foreman had just left his desk which was up against the wall just right of the window. What’s left of the desk is visible through the window.
