Cessna 172 Plane Crash – Putty NSW

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 .
