Bad news from Queensland and something that personally I am very saddened by. The helicopter based at Dreamworld that takes park attendees on joy flights around the Gold Coast crashed today injuring five.
The chopper experienced difficulty when over the park but the pilot appears to have managed to control the aircraft enough to bring it down in the car park avoiding injuries on the ground.
Only 2 weeks ago I was up on the Gold Coast and my daughter and I watched this very aircraft taking off and landing a few times whilst we waited for transport. She loved being that close to it and feeling the downwash from the propellers as it lifted away each time.
