Pilot lost in Tasmania
A SEARCH is under way in remote southwest Tasmania for a missing twin-engine plane and its solo pilot.
The Airlines of Tasmania aircraft went missing near the rugged Arthur Ranges around 8.30am yesterday. It was on a routine flight to pick up passengers from Melaleuca.
“We have grave concerns for this pilot who’s been with the company for three years and is very experienced and well qualified,” Airlines of Tasmania managing director Shannon Wells said. The aircraft was fitted with a satellite tracker.
