TWO men are lucky to be alive after a light plane they were travelling in made an emergency landing north of the Gold Coast this morning.

Police report the plane landed on a football field at Runcorn around 7:30am.

The plane narrowly missed homes, powerlines and busy roads before the landing.

The pilot and passenger walked away from the crash with only minor injuries.

The reason for the emergency landing is not yet known.

 

Glasgow day six update

EMILY Seebohm who was tipped to be the favourite to win the women’s 50 metre backstroke has failed to fire overnight.

Better news for Daniel Tranter who claimed gold in the 200 individual medley, with Gold Coaster Thomas Fraser-Holmes just missing third spot.

Fellow local Cameron McEvoy was second and James Magnussen third in the 50 metre freestyle.

Bronte Barratt touched the wall in third place in the 400 metre swim.

Swimming relay events will be underway shortly.

In other events Aussie Kurt Fearnley won his heat of the 1500 metre wheelchair, despite suffering the flu.

The Kookaburras have maintained their winning hockey record against India with a 4-2 win.

Veteran shooter Adam Vella has held his nerve to win the single trap gold medal.

In the rapid fire pistol David Champan has won Aussie gold in the men’s 25m after hitting 23 of 40 targets to set a finals record.

Jetstar passengers warned to flush drugs

A Jetstar crew member has been criticised for warning passengers to flush their drugs away.

Passengers were told of quarantine inspections at Sydney Airport, with the crew member announcing to passengers that “anything you shouldn’t have” should be flushed.

The flight departed from the Gold Coast and had many passengers on-board returning from the Splendour in the Grass Festival.

Jetstar issued a statement saying the words were “poorly chosen and plainly at odds with the professional standards we’d expect from our team.”

The airline apologised and said the staff member in question would be reprimanded.

‘Gold Coast Cops’ set for our TV screens

A NEW reality TV series following Gold Coast police as they dismantle bikie gangs and tackle organised crime is expected to make for extraordinary viewing.

Filming is already underway for Gold Coast Cops, with Network Ten crews reportedly given unprecedented access to the elite Rapid Action Patrol (RAP) taskforce, formed in the wake of the infamous Broadbeach bikie brawl in September last year.

It’s understood the documentary series will follow the squad’s every move, giving the public a compelling insight into how the taskforce is taking back the Glitter Strip.

Superintendent Jim Keogh told the Gold Coast Bulletin that the series, produced by the same company behind Kalgoorlie Cops, would showcase the work done by police to drive bikies from the city.
