Tragic landing incident (4 fatal) overlooking the South Coast of NSW, adjacent to Panorama House. It is believed the R44 clipped trees (top left of pic) and flipped over. Reports that the occupants survived the crash but perished in a post crash fuel fire, staff from the adjacent restaurant attempted to extinguish the fire and rescue the occupants (hence the fire extinguishers visible). While the ATSB will determine the cause, they have stated this R44 was not retrofitted with “bladder tanks”.

They died doing what they love. How many of us will get that chance? This illustrates the wise old quote, "Aviation in itself is not inherently dangerous. But to an even greater degree than the sea, it is terribly unforgiving of any carelessness, incapacity or neglect."
