Small plane missing near Lucyvale Victoria

Saw this on Channel 7 News a while ago - don't seem to be able to find anything by doing a Google search.

Its been found in trees in the Talangatta Valley and it does not look good. Rescue being roped in, a track will need to be cut from nearest road.

Definitely did not feel like flying weather the last 24 hours in Victoria.

Unrelated to this incident looks like a crop duster has come to grief in QLD as well.

Thanks for that. So much for "aircraft safe" then!

Here's the (very) low down on the Jabiru:

ABC were reporting this morning that the young RAAus pilot and his girlfriend bought the plane only recently and were excitedly looking forward to many weekends away in it - but not to be. Sad indeed.

His posts suggested that he was planning to use the aircraft to commute back and forth to Melbourne and he was working towards an RPL or PPL to enable entry into CTA.
