The pilot was returning from a flight to '4 Mile', a property some 20 km southwest of Giru, to the strip on his father's property, adjacent to Pink Lily Lagoon, where the aircraft was normally based.

Examination of the wreckage found no evidence of pre-existing defect or malfunction. The engine was not producing high power at the time of impact but no reason was found why it should not have been capable of normal operation. There was no fire.
