Defence Minister Richard Marles and US Defence Secretary Lloyd Austin will appear together on Sunday at the Talisman Sabre exercises in Townsville. After being paused on Saturday following the crash, the exercises have resumed in the Northern Territory and Western Australia. The entire MH-90 Taipan fleet, however, remains grounded.

Channel Nine, the owner of this masthead, reported that about 800 defence and emergency services personnel have been scouring the site of the crash, near Hamilton Island in the Whitsundays, since 10.30pm on Friday.

Former Australian Army Colonel Professor John Blaxland told Channel Nine’sWeekend Today program that he had grave fears for those onboard.


“So there’s not much fresh news at hand unfortunately,” he said. “And that’s a really bad indicator for the fact that we’re probably looking at not being able to recover anybody alive.

“Helicopters are really dangerous aircraft because they are inherently unstable. They rely on the rear rotor to actually maintain the stability of an incredibly dangerous spinning four blades at the top,” he said.
