Flight tracking data published  Online showed the 6.21am flight landed safely at King Island Airport near the town of Currie despite overshooting its target by 46km.


The data, obtained by The Australian, showed the trip was one of seven flights flown that day by the Piper PA-31 Navajo VH-TWU.

In the statement, the ATSB alleged that ‘during the cruise the pilot fell asleep resulting in the aircraft overflying King Island by 46km’.

Investigators have classified it as a ‘serious operational incident’ and are in the process of collecting evidence ahead of a final report.
