Thought this would have been picked up earlier.On Tuesday a Hornet crew aborted takeoff at Amberly and ejected from their run.Following the incident the Defence Force decided to ground the Fleet to try find the cause.A while ago a Superbug at Red Flag had an engine rapidly disassemble itself on the takeoff as well but noone is saying its the same cause.

The Royal Australian Air Force will ground its entire fleet of Super Hornets and Growlers after two pilots were forced to eject before a crash in Queensland. The emergency involved a military jet that ran off the runway at the base in Amberley,

Story here.
And a video.

I saw the video rolling down the runway, and the crew parachuting, but I didn't see that they had grounded them yet.
