Seems it was a Vans RV-7, VH-XWI.

The flight was from Winton to Bowen.

Very tragic -( ironic how Ray's wife Jen died in an auto accident a few years ago, life is very cruel sometimes.
RIP -(

A former ppruner was showing me the flightaware track last night which was interesting and there was some crud in the Townsville area.

Once the photos of the wreckage are seen you’ll soon be able to join the dots.
