VINTAGE WARBIRD MAKES EMERGENCY LANDING NEAR REDHEAD

An aircraft has made an emergency landing on the beach between Redhead and Blacksmiths.

It’s understood the Tigermoth took off from Luskintyre Airport at Maitland on a joyflight, and encountered a mechanical issue while flying down the coast.

 

UPDATE – The plane is now being towed off Blacksmiths Beach to the nearest access point.

The pilot’s name is Charlotte Zeederberg.

More details to come in NBN News at 6pm.
