one pilot, a 37 year old australian, male has left a wife and two young children.
the second pilot was a 39 year old new zealander.
In fact each pilot had three children, all six of which are under the age of four. pug's kids are carbon copy red haired terrors.
The NZ' man's wife is or was Australian, strongly connected in the NT.
Yup, aviation can be a proper bastard at times, a most regrettable accident.
i sincerely hope that one or both GPS's may have survived for some clues.
The ABC has it that ATSB are sending about five investigators. (on site today I believe) Work Health WA the police and of course the Broome Coroner are also mentioned, several times.
No clues on whose AOC they were operating? We hear that 0ne of the owners of the machines also owned the station where they were working.
Heresay has it that there is another person (of PNG experience and an engineer) who may be also a co-owner of the machines?????
