On 10 February 2015, a Drifter and a Thruster ultralight aircraft, recreational registration 25-0452 and 10-0339 respectively, both collided with terrain approximately 7km south of Donnington Airpark, near Townsville, QLD.

Recreational Aviation Australia (RA-Aus) is the organisation responsible for investigating this accident. As part of its investigation, RA-Aus requested technical assistance from the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) in the examination of physical components from the involved aircraft. To protect the information supplied by RA-Aus to the ATSB and the ATSB's investigative work to assist RA-Aus, the ATSB initiated an investigation under the Transport Safety Investigation Act 2003.

Results of a visual examination of the physical components were provided to RA-Aus on 8 April 2015.

Enquiries relating to this occurrence should be directed to Recreational Aviation Australia.
