Response to Inquest Findings

The Coroner’s Court of Victoria, without holding an inquest, recently made findings into a 2012 fatal De Havilland Aircraft DH-82A (Tiger Moth) aircraft at the Maryborough Airfield.

The Coroner adopted the Sequence of Events as set out in the Australian Transport Safety Bureau final report in relation to how the accident occurred and incorporated into his finding those of the ATSB as to the possible cause of loss of power.
