After a two day search, the wreckage of missing De Havilland DH.84 Dragon VH-UXG has been found in dense bushland this afternoon, Queensland Police have confirmed.
The site, described by an AMSA spokesperson as a “high impact crash site”, was discovered at 2pm today 14km north of Borumba Dam. None of the six on board, including owner pilot and well known aviation identity Des Porter, survived the crash.
The 1934 built Dragon went missing on Monday when it was returning to Caboolture from the Monto Fly-In.
Australian Aviation extends it condolences to the families and friends of all on board.
