Any accident is a tragedy. This one especially so since the persons involved were widely known and respected throughout Australia, with long and distinguished careers in their respective fields.

Investigators head to ABC chopper crash site - Paul Lockyer, John Bean and Gary Ticehurst: Remembering three of the ABC's finest (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

It would appear that the machine involved was VH-HVT, but that is circumstantial. Reports suggest that the wreckage is spread over a wide area and that fire was involved. The site is also in a very remote location.

A sad day indeed.

Correction: The aircraft was not HVT but NTV. Apologies for the error.
