School awaits results

OFFICIALS from the Pacific Flying School (PFS) in Nadi are yet to be interviewed regarding the Cessna 172 crash probe in February this year.

PFS managing director and owner Tim Joyce said they were also awaiting results of the investigation into the crash.

Mr Joyce said they were awaiting word from the private investigator.

“We have not been interviewed yet by the private investigator regarding the incident,” he said.

Meanwhile, members of the public in the North have queried about the results of the investigation.

On February 26 this year, the Cessna 172 aircraft crashed in the Delaikoro mountain range, prompting a search and rescue operation in the other nearby mountain ranges.

The flight was manned by pilot instructor Iliesa Tawalo and trainee pilot Merelesita Lutu whose bodies were discovered at the crash site on February 28.

Government had hired a New Zealand-based private investigator, Andrew McGregor, who specialises in providing air accident investigation services and forensic engineering, to carry out an independent investigation on the crash.
