As the search continues, it has emerged that the pilot of the missing aircraft had previously been involved in a fatal crash:
Quote: Mr Porter survived a fatal crash in the same model airplane which claimed the lives of his father and brother in the 1950s.
He was 10 when the plane flown by his father went down in a creek in Brisbane's south in 1954.
