Delivered

Dear Civil Aviation Safety Authority,

Mr Gobbert

I hereby request that CASA provide to me ALL maintenance documentation pertaining to and including worksheets, reports, recommendations and to whom they were given, with regard to the aircraft VHTFU, between January 2003 and May 2005.. As I know you are very aware, VHTFU was destroyed when it struck South Pap west of Lockhart River on the morning of 07 May 2005. I am sure you also know that my daughter was one of those who was killed in the crash.

In qualifying my request...
-I am particularly interested in the navigation equipment on board VHTFU during this time.
-such documents must include who carried out the maintenance, when and where.
-such documents must include all records of maintenance carried out by Hawker Pacific in Cairns and provided to the operator Rik Lippmann (Aerotropics), just prior to the incident.
-such documentation was NEVER provided to the Inquest or by the ATSB Investigators involved.
-reference to such records outlined in the Official ATSB report....do NOT explain any details of maintenance records or how they were obtained or viewed or by whom.

I look forward to your timely response to this request.

Yours faithfully,

Shane Urquhart
