Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

FIVE pas­sen­gers were forced to board an­other plane for Air­lie Beach af­ter their orig­i­nal air­craft was dam­aged on Hardy Reef. About 5pm Mon­day, an Air Whit­sun­day Sea­planes plane “rubbed against the reef” caus­ing dam­age to its floats while it was pre­par­ing to take off. Donna Lloyd was one of the five pas­sen­gers on board the Air Whit­sun­days Sea plane and said it could have been a lot worse. “We were all pretty calm but were a bit con­cerned we would have to stay on the boat for a while be­cause it was get­ting dark and we were strug­gling to get any­one to hear us on the ra­dio,” she said.
