McCormack what a defensive ****.
That episode has already been made.

This isnít the first time 4 Corners has had a scrutinising look at the Rex group, in 2012 they produced an episode about the Pelair (owned by Rex) ditching off Norfolk Island and the subsequent disaster that was the CASA oversight of the company and the flawed ATSB investigation. It indirectly led to the departure of John McCormack from CASA. The video episode at the link below:

Crash Landing

John Sharp is featured in the episode, albeit briefly. They really donít go into any possible collusion or influence that Sharpís political connections may have exerted on CASA in that episode, but it is interesting to see how the company of the former National Party MP (who had to resign from the ministry over a travel rort scandal) has influence with the government in the aviation arena today in 2020.
