PLANE MISSING ON INVERELL FLIGHT

TAMWORTH, Thursday.

A Tiger moth aircraft, piloted by John Mayne, 20, of Texas, this afternoon, left Tamworth for Inverell and has not been heard of since leaving Bundarra, about sunset on the last stage of the flight.

The country between Bundarra and Inverell comprises open, cultivation land and it is believed the pilot may have made a forced landing.

A search is to be made tomorrow by East-West Airlines.
