Read in a paper yesterday it was a C152 trying to get to Nowra from Wollongong earlier in the week. Conditions at Nowra were non VMC, so aircraft attempted to return to YWOL. Unfortunately ran into some problems with deteriorating weather.
Witnesses reported hearing an aircraft very low over terrain, and then an increase in power and then impact. Thought to be a delay in a rescue helicopter reaching the site due to weather.
