Light Aircraft Down near Whitsunday Airport

Postby damian f » Tue Feb 07, 2012 2:52 pm

Hi All,

Skydive Airlie Beach operated Cessna 182, VH-JOU, made a forced landing on Shute Harbour Road, Shute Harbour, about 8km East of Airlie Beach, in the Whitsundays, at about 3pm on Monday. The pilot from Townsville and his dog escaped uninjured.

This was the second plane crash in recent weeks, with Bingo 45 ultralight - 19-4329 - crashing at Brandy Creek - also in the Whitsundays, critically injuring two of its three occupants.

Some photos (from other sources) are on the CQ Plane Spotting Blog.
