ABC News Helicopter Crashes in South Australia

Three members of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) news team have sadly died after their helicopter crashed near Lake Eyre in South Australia on Thursday 18 August.

The three staff – veteran journalist Paul Lockyer, cameraman John Bean and pilot Gary Ticehurst – were on board working on a story about Lake Eyre.

The helicopter involved has been identified as Aerospatiale AS.355F2 VH-NTV, which CQ Plane Spotting managed to photograph earlier this year at Clermont Aerodrome, as it flew up to North Queensland to assist in the reporting of the aftermath of Cyclone Yasi.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of the victims.
