Cairns – Lockhart River
Crew on board:
Pax on board:
The twin engine aircraft departed Cairns on a charter flight to Lockhart River, carrying workers for the government. While descending to Lockhart River, the pilot encountered marginal weather conditions with rain falls and strong winds. A first approach to Lockhart River was abandoned and the pilot was forced to initiate a go-around. Few minutes later, a second attempt to land was also interrupted. During a third approach, the aircraft crashed on the Claudie Beach located about 4 km southeast of Lockhart River. All five occupants were killed.
