THREE people are feared dead after an “unsurvivable” plane crash in Queensland, authorities claim. Officers from Mount Isa and a rescue helicopter are attempting to reach the light aircraft which is in “difficult terrain”.
Flight records show the plane left Toowoomba just before 11am on Saturday. It was due to land in Mount Isa around 3pm when it disappeared from the radar between Cloncurry and Mount Isa.
Queensland police and paramedics were alerted by a local community member just after 2.30pm, as reported by 7News.
A QAS spokesperson informed the Australian outlet that the crash was “believed to be unsurvivable” but did not confirm how many people were onboard.
