Heck Airfield Based Ultralight Nose-Dives into Pad

Heck Airfield Based Ultralight Nose-Dives into Paddock - Pilot Sustains Minor Injuries




Police and Emergency Services were called to an aircraft crash at Jacobs Well in SE QLD after a ultralight nose-dived into a cane paddock


The aircraft had just taken off from nearby Heck Airfield - a popular sport and recreational aerodrome - when the mishap occurred - the pilot received only minor injuries and was taken to hospital for treatment


Up until a few years ago the Heck Airfield was a small and almost insignificant airport supported only by a handful of recreational and home-builder pilots


Recent upgrades and lengthening of the main runway have turned this once sleepy cane paddock on the edge of Moreton Bay into a thriving busy and progressive airport

Never good to see items listed in this section...


Believe the aircraft involved according to other media reports was a Corby Starlet.


Sincerely hope the pilot has no serious injuries.
