Red Bull Air Racer Down, Survives

Adilson Kindlemann Involved In A Practice Accident In Perth, Australia

Brazilian pilot Adilson Kindlemann was involved in an accident while practicing for the Red Bull Air Race to be held in Perth, Australia. Kindlemann's plane went down just before noon local time Thursday, impacting the Swan River. The pilot survived the accident. His condition was described as "stable."

Perth's 7 News reports that the airplanes were operating out of Jandakot airport due to high winds reported at Langley Park airstrip.

A witness said the plane was heading up the Swan River in front of a restaurant when a wing touched the water. Kindlemann was only in the water for a few minutes before a rescue boat reached the plane and took him ashore. He was transferred to Royal Perth Hospital, where he was treated in the emergency room.

Red Bull Air Race chief executive Bernd Loidl said the organization would offer its full support to an investigation.

Kindlemann is a former airline pilot with over 11,000 hours, 1,200 of that in aerobatics. He is the first South American to compete in the Red Bull series.

An official statement from the Red Bull Air Race organization said:

“While maneuvering his MXS-R race plane, approaching gate three in the middle of the race track, Kindlemann impacted the water with his wings level and tail first. Specially trained emergency response teams rushed to the scene and rescued Kindlemann as the aircraft floated in the water, in less than one minute. He was then transported to the Royal Perth Hospital.

Brazil’s Adilson Kindlemann wanted to reassure his fans and supporters that he was feeling fine and not seriously hurt. Kindlemann also wanted to thank the emergency rescue crews that rushed to his aid.

He was treated for a minor whiplash injury and said he hoped to be out of Royal Perth Hospital in time to watch Friday’s training sessions. He also said he appreciated the support from other Red Bull Air Race pilots."

The race in Perth is scheduled for this weekend.
