‘Plane Destroyed in Crash Landing – –
The Truscott Flying Club’s plane, Robin, was wrecked when it made a forced landing in a paddock near Hollywood holiday resort ( Lansdowne – 2163 ) on the George’s River on Wednesday. The single occupant of the aircraft, Mr. Leon Creagh, 21, of Botany, a student pilot, was unhurt. Creagh ‘undershot’ the paddock he had selected for a forced landing
and stalled the aircraft to avoid hitting overhead wires. The plane dropped into the paddock in an almost straight and level position from a height of 40 feet and hit the ground with such force that it fell to pieces. Robin, a De Haviland 60 Gipsy Moth, was used for years by Dr. Clyde Fenton on aerial medical trips in the Northern Territory. ( Leon is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Ernie Creagh, of Gloucester ).
