Busy Month Continues
Posted on June 30th, 2015
April continues to be a busy month with our crew clocking up more than 10 hours of flying time over the weekend.
#caprescue airlifted a 70 year old Gracemere man from a property at Rolleston on Saturday morning. The patient was transported in a serious but stable condition with possible facial and head injuries. The patient’s injuries were sustained during a horse fall.
On Saturday night and into the early hours of Sunday morning our crew conducted two night vision goggle searches for a missing Jabiru light aircraft which failed to respond to communications. A parallel task search from an area approximately seven nautical miles East of Wowan to an area forty nautical miles North East of Gympie was performed for almost six hours before returning to base.
Our crew continued to search for the missing Jabiru light aircraft on Sunday morning at a position North West of Gympie before being retasked to a horse fall near Marlborough. A 66 year old man from Stanage Bay was airlifted in a stable condition with a suspected fractured pelvis.
Our crew continued searching for the missing Jabiru light aircraft yesterday afternoon and are still out this morning.
