Bus becomes bogged on Fraser Island trying to bail out beached plane

When a bus driver saw a plane bogged on this Fraser Island beach, he tried to help tow it out. But that’s how he got into a sticky situation.

The company towing the bus out this morning said it was bringing a hook truck and excavator over from the mainland.

“When we get there we’ll have a bit of a dig around the bus where it sunk into the sand and we’ll pull it out,” Rainbow Beach Recovery Repairs and Services’ Dean Hayes said.

He said it could take up to six hours to pull the bus free.
