Approximate 600pm – 27 October 2014 – I was listening to ATC on my radio scanner – 133.05 was the main radio frequency , operated by Brisbane Centre .
Several airliners – Qantas, Jetstar had monitered and heard the beacon which was activated on 121.5 Mhz . The beacon was heard around Mudgee, Coonabarabran as they flew over head .
The Cessna had refuelled at Mudgee and was on way to Lustkintyre airport when re ran into trouble and made emergency landing near Putty Valley Road and Box Gap Road .

One very lucky man in his 60’s was flown to John Hunter Hospital with serious chest and head injuries – no report as to what has occurred – sure ATSB will be on site to investigate soon .
