Warning: date_default_timezone_get() [function.date-default-timezone-get]: It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier.

Blue Goose departed off Perth Runway 11 towards you and tracked to the left of this picture.


Just three minutes later, while the radio operator was in mid sentence communicating with 6 Fighter Centre Headquarters at Belmont, Blue Goose crashed into the Darling Range at Gooseberry Hill due west of Perth.   All on board were killed by impact as the aircraft struck the rising stony ground in front of the tree in the title picture.   The left wing sheared off and came to rest against a house that had been narrowly missed by the fuselage.   With sufficient fuel for a flight to Adelaide, the main portion of the aircraft burned profusely, the tail however, broke away on impact and came to rest facing 180 degrees to the direction of flight, on a granite outcrop approximately 50 feet beyond the tree and in doing so escaped the worst of the fire.
