Barossa police Chief Inspector Alex
Zimmermann said he would not spec-
ulate on the cause of the crash, with
aviation officials still investigating.
"There was an eyewitness to the
aircraft crashing and that information
will be passed on to the investigators,"
Lyndoch pilot David Lindner
said he believed the plane may have
broken up mid-air.
"I'm in shock at the moment...it's
shaken me up. I have actually flown
that aircraft (before)," he said on the
day of the accident.
"It was a beautiful aircraft to fly, I
had no trouble with it whatsoever."

WORK is set to begin on the $2
million Gawler Oval redevelop-
ment, with Greyhound Racing
SA hoping to have the entire
project completed by Christmas.
Gawler Council finalised the
terms and conditions of the lease
at its meeting last week, giving the
green light for development to begin
at the site.
Greyhound Racing SA strategic
projects manager Scott Wuchatsch
said the first step was to demolish
the existing grandstand.
"We've had our first site meeting
with the builder," he said.
"The demolition of the (existing)
building has commenced."
Gawler greyhound meetings
scheduled for July 8 and July 13
have been relocated to other tracks
to establish temporary facilities at
the track while work is under way.
Mr Wuchatsch said races would
then continue as normal while work
on the new development was in
"We will be racing right through
the period, Tuesday and Sundays,
we'll have temporary facilities set
up," he said.
"We will run right through De-
cember, when it is expected to be
GRSA executives have been work-
ing for several years to reach a deci-
sion on how to upgrade the kennel
house and former grandstand on
the property, which is also used by
the Gawler Central Sporting Club
and Gawler Show Society, as well as
the Gawler Greyhound Club.
The project includes an updated
two-storey facility with a viewing
platform, exterior lighting, chil-
dren's playground, 60 car parks and
Gawler Council chief executive
Henry Inat said council was excited
about the development.
"Greyhound racing is televised
around Australia and certainly takes
the brand 'Gawler' interstate and
overseas," he said.
"The local greyhound club has a
very strong membership, and grey-
hound breeding is big business that
this facility will certainly add value
"The facility and racing is a
tourist attraction and should add
value to our visitor numbers as the
sport continues to grow through
a new and exciting strategic plan
for greyhound racing in South
The project was previously in some
doubt, due to negotiations between
the two parties about lease fees, but
was resolved when council agreed to
substantially drop the lease cost of
the development from $26,800 per
annum to just $2350.
