The ATSB is investigating an aircraft accident involving a Cessna 310R aircraft, registered VH-JMW, that occurred about 40 km SSW of Port Macquarie, NSW on 28 October 2017.

The aircraft collided with terrain, fatally injuring the two persons on board.

The ATSB deployed a team of four investigators to the accident site with expertise that includes aircraft operations, engineering and maintenance.

While on site, the team will be examining the site and wreckage, gathering any recorded data, and interviewing any witnesses.

The ATSB will release a preliminary investigation report in approximately 30 days. A final report into the accident may take approximately 12 months to complete.

However, should a critical safety issue be identified during the course of the investigation, the ATSB will immediately notify those affected and seek safety action to address the issue.
