Shortly before 2:00 p.m. today, one of our members, who was an experienced pilot and instructor, took off in an aircraft by himself with no passengers.

At approximately 2:20 p.m., other members operating in the vicinity were requested by the Air Traffic Control to see if they could establish radio contact with him. Unfortunately, this was without success. We were later informed that the aircraft had crashed into the Tolo Harbour and the pilot had lost his life.

We are deeply saddened by this and we are sorry to have lost a passionate aviator, loving husband and father.

The President
Hong Kong Aviation Club

今天下午二時許,本會一名經驗豐富的飛行員,兼本會定翼機教練在沒有載乘客之下獨自駕駛本會小型飛機在石崗機場起飛,到吐露港上空進行飛行。

在大約下午二時二十分,民航處空中交通管制中心要求本會其他在附近飛行的飛行員嘗試用無線電方式跟他聯絡,不幸地,當時其他飛行員均無法成功聯絡他。稍後時間,本會職員收到消息所知,涉事飛機已經於吐露港海域墜毀,該飛行員亦不幸因意外而喪生。

本會對失去了一位資深的飛行員及教練,以及非常稱職的好丈夫及父親而感到十分悲傷及沉痛。
