Mt Bruce Air Crash – 8 May 2016

In 1979 a light aircraft crashed in the Mt Bruce forest, the pilot survived, possibly aided by the dense bush slowing his fall. The wreck was rediscovered while setting up tracks for the current pest trapping operations. A short walk, on difficult uneven terrain, not to be recommended if it has been wet. There are parts of the fuselage still on the site, but not a lot to look at. Six members recently went in for a mornings walk.
