I was just reading an informative thread, 108331, which has now archived.

A question was raised after I wrote about this aircraft recently on my website, and the inquiry was around why the owners were not required to remove the aircraft, as is often the case?

Not suggesting they should, or shouldn’t have, just whether there is any detail around that aspect.

It may not be the same answer in your case, but there is also a plane wreck not far from the homestead on the Trinidad station, out of Quilpie in Qld. The pilot was killed, but the 4 (?) mining engineers on board all survived. When I asked, I was told that becasue there were witnesses (survivors), they did not need to do all the forensic stuff. Pilot error.

There are many wrecks in remote and difficult locations. Once investigation complete is the property of the insurance company. I believe that they will not recover unless worth repairing./

Understand...

Although, perhaps in some cases they don't get a choice...

"why the owners were not required to remove the aircraft, as is often the case?" - you could probably say the same thing about vehicle wrecks - ain't gonna happen.....

At least the road graders push them into the bush and burn the toxic materials out...

And in practice that may well be the case, but what if it is your private land and you don't want it there? There must be some requirements to cover this.

And I get it this aircraft is in the middle of no-where and most likely that no-one was too concerned about its removal.

Had me thinking after I was asked...
