A REPORT into last year’s fatal plane crash at Bagshot will be released on Thursday.
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau has investigated the October 29 incident, which claimed the life of a 77-year-old Mount Evelyn passenger.
A 65-year-old man and 75-year-old man were hospitalised after the crash.
An ATSB spokeswoman said the report could recommend safety changes, and was part of normal process after an accident.
She said the coroner could also look into the matter.
The coroner’s office could not be contacted yesterday.
The Civil Aviation Safety Authority will also investigate the report and any safety issues it identifies.
The ATSB revealed in December the nose landing gear of the aircraft struck the powerlines, which were seven metres above ground and 140 metres from the end of the runway.
According to the ATSB, the aircraft came to a rest in an inverted position and the central part of the plane caught fire.
The rear passenger sustained only minor injuries, according to the bureau.
The powerlines had no markers, but the bureau noted that was not required for private airstrips.
A witness said the plane had been making a final approach when it struck the powerlines and rotated over them.
One witness to the incident, who asked not to be named, said the report would fully explain what happened.
