Second hand info is that they wanted to do coffee at a lodge near Derby. During runway inspection the engine quit. One plus one ok.

It looks like a good day for carb icing.

That is a high dew point for the reef...more common at the coast.

Is that possibly a result of the extraordinary high humidity levels caused by thunder storms at night and heatwave by day?

About two weeks ago it was 21 degrees with dewpoint of 19, here near George. The humidity was also quite high, forget what it was, maybe 90 something.
The closest I get to flying these days is when I put my cellphone in 'flight mode'.

Might well be! The late evening Thunderstorms often result in Low cloud or Mist over OR Tambo. Used to get the same in Livingstone, Zambia (Also very hot in summer).

Funny thing: I know that C172s have carb heat; but thought to have remembered that C182s were injected? ZS-IIL used to live at the coast and I had hours on it (belonged to a Comair customer and we used it sometimes) -- cannot remember ever using carb heat...but then the memory ain't wot it was...

Most C182s are running with 0-470 engines, not fuel injected.
