Narrative:This was a Mercy flight to transport a very sick child to the Derby Hospital encountered severe electrical storms that were described as "the worst seen around here" and crashed basically on correct directional track. The wreckage was not discovered for about 3 weeks, despite the largest air search in Australian history (to that time), due to local flooding and generally poor weather conditions.
