Ten years since the Lockhart River plane crash

06 May 2015 , 9:37 PM by Annie Reuss | Comments (0)

This weeks marks 10 years since one of Queensland’s worst air disasters.. and the worst in Australia since the 1960s.

A small passenger plane flying from the tip of Cape York to Cairns … and was carrying a wide range of passengers along with two pilots.

All fifteen people on board were killed when it hit the side of a hill near Lockhart River.

It was a shocking accident and led to a number of changes to not only small airlines but even the body that oversees aviation in Australia.

One of those who died was 28 year old police Constable Sally Urquhart.  Her father Shane became a very public face of the families of the victims and he spoke to David Curnow.
