Please Cuties I am very sad tonight could you please say a prayer for my friend Des and his family their vintage plane is missing on a flight from central Queensland to Brisbane this afternoon in heavy fog and rain. He is the pilot and five others are on board. We have been friends for 68 years and he survived a crash 57 years ago in his fathers plane in which his father and elder brother died. i am praying for another miracle. Thank you all. Hugs Joyce

I am so very sorry to have just read the very sad news that the plane has been found and all six people on board are believed to have perished in the high impact crash.
My heart goes out to you Joyce, and the family and other friends. This tragedy will no doubt affect many and one can only pray for their pain to be replaced by fond memories, in time.
My heartfelt sympathy to all. Meg

They say that they will surch again tomorrow. I am starting to loose heart. This is the second of my friends who have crashed in the last couple of years the other was my friends husband Barry Covington who crashed off the sunshine coast he took his plane out over the water so it would not crash into houses they found him 3 days later. He flew over his house waved the wings and headed out to sea as the engine was failing. He had just flown home from Adelaide..
