Canberra Man amongst dead in Indonesian helicopter crash

By DavidHeidelberg - 7 April 2005 6

Old news now, but I think that it is worth noting that Canberra Man, Matt Davey was unfortunately one of the nine people killed in the recent Sea King Helicopter crash in Indonesia.

Matt was well known to me through his work as an Intensive Care Doctor. I also knew him through our common love of paragliding.

What’s Your opinion?

The hill at Kaleen is a training hill, but still fun.

Canberra’s main site is Spring Hill, which is between Hall and Murrumbateman (sic?) You can actually see it from the Barton Highway.

There are also sites at pig hill, near Uriarra and the best summer site is Lake George.

If you want to learn, call the guy on that link. He’s a tool in my opinion, but the only instructor in town, and not a bad guy to get on with. Just don’t give him all your money up front!

See you in the sky. Actually, there’s another copper who flys. Name is Jim Astley. He’s a detective in the sexual assault team, about to move to drugs I hear. Nice guy, chat with him.
