Crash survivours


FOUR people survived a light plane crash at Tooradin Airfield on Sunday 20 March.

Witnesses say strong winds appeared to buffet the Cessna 182T as it came into land.

The plane struck three other planes as it came into the airfield, bending in half before it came to a halt.

The four people aboard, a man in his 50s, another in his 20s, a woman, 31, and a four-year-old girl were all taken to Frankston Hospital and treated for light injuries, bruises and shock.

The crash happened at about 1pm in full view of diners at the airfield restaurant.

CFA crews and police were quickly on the scene but there was no fire or explosion.
