Light air­craft still miss­ing

Townsville Bulletin - - News -

PO­LICE are con­tin­u­ing to search for a light plane that dis­ap­peared on a flight from Cairns to Horn Is­land in the Tor­res Strait. Their land search yes­ter­day took in Horn Is­land, Prince of Wales Is­land and the north­ern penin­sula. The air­craft, flown by a 37-yearold pilot from Yorkeys Knob, north of Cairns, failed to ar­rive at its des­ti­na­tion on Thurs­day morn­ing. Ex­ten­sive air, land and sea searches have been con­ducted in the area since then but have failed to find any sign of the light air­craft. Po­lice be­lieve the pilot was the only per­son on board.
