At about 1545 hours EST on 18 June, 1974 a Cessna 210H aircraft, registered VH-KIG,
flew into the south-western side of Mount Dom Dom, Victoria, about 100 feet below the summit. The aircraft
was on a private flight from Archerfield, Queensland, via Mudgee, New South Wales, to Moorabbin, Victoria.
The four occupants were killed and the aircraft was destroyed by impact forces and subsequent fire.
The eyewitness evidence indicates that the pilot was attempting to maintain visual flight
below cloud but as the clearance between the cloud base and the rising terrain around Mt. Dom Dom reduced
this finally became impossible.
