On short final to Walaha (en route from Espiritu Santo) 01-Oct-2016 the aircraft experienced an elevator control cable failure. This occurred approximately 20-30 seconds prior to touch down, and enough control was maintained to land safely. The aircraft is seen below in Jul-2015, with thanks to Paul Howard.
