Correction on my prior post.
Cessna was seen on radar after take off, that means its more likely
that he chose to return to land and overshot. I don't mind the speculation but
its very obvious that many know far more than what is public right now.

Amazing, half a billion dollars of drugs for the lawyers in Melbourne but they couldnt extend the runway by 200 metres. They should get a job with CASA!

JORN

As far as I can remember the JORN system is more broad based surveillance but can be focused in certain areas if required. So if there was intelligence that such a flight was happening then they could certainly track it across to PNG and back.

But from all the articles Iíve ever read about it, JORN doesnít see everything, everywhere, all the time. Plus I think the state of the ionosphere can affect it as well (it bounces radio waves to get Ďover the horizoní).

Otherwise why would the occasional refugee boat sneak through? Or what about MH370, the coverage maps show JORN has the potential to see out that far.

There has been a few aircraft go down over the last few years that havenít been immediately found even with Australiaís assistant.

A Hevilift Long Ranger & NCA Islander come to mind.

MH370 might be in the Highlands

Maybe because most are wood?

Breaking News!

The Director of Protocol to the Prime Minister's office Ms. Julie Wapo was arrested and charged with her involvement in the Drug Syndicate plane crash.

The story suggests that Wapo was carefully chosen for the position to mislead the Prime Minister.

She will sing a song that will make dozens run for cover (if she lives long enough)

The pilot concerned perhaps never thought that maybe they weren’t supposed to survive this exercise.

Why would that be the case?

Plenty of aircraft fly in and out of PNG on a regular basis.

Squawk,

You are very wrong. The helicopter yesterday would have been the first NON essential movement since Covid restrictions started.
medevac is allowed along with FIFO under strictly controlled conditions. Any RPT aircraft are freight only.

Correct. Nobody said anything the purpose of the flight.

Any chance of telling us non PNG guys about the Neil Brooker at Lake Murray incident. I knew Neil back in the 70s when he was doing his CPL.

Send me a PM and I'll respond as it's off topic here.

A sophisticated drug syndicate used covert flights, encrypted devices and false identities to import drugs from Papua New Guinea to northern Queensland, a Melbourne court has been told.
