The Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) has advised that the door that fell from a Raytheon Beechcraft King Air B300 aircraft on Tuesday 7 September 2004 has been located.

The ATSB would like to thank media outlets for their cooperation in publicising our request for assistance in finding the cabin door.

The door was located to the south-west of Theodore, Central Queensland.

With the assistance of the Queensland Police Service the door will be delivered to the ATSB's laboratories in Canberra for examination.

The ATSB will now be in a much better position to determine why the door fell off.

The ATSB's investigation report will be made public and placed on the ATSB website when the investigation has been completed.
