Missing plane

Simon Hazelman, Savusavu
Wednesday, February 28, 2018

While this mishap is unfortunate one wonders why and what this Cessna 172 was doing between Savusavu and Labasa considering the very poor weather on the day.

It rained all day and at about the time the plane disappeared we were driving over the Savusavu-Labasa mountain range and all vehicles driving through had their headlights full on because of the poor visibility on the ground.

This very heavy rain and thunderstorm weather was forecasted by the Fiji Meteorological Service the day before and also the morning of the accident.

Unfortunate indeed!
