Turnbull, Bruce Bligh (1926–1982)

Four people died yesterday when a single-engined Piper Warrior crashed at Gloucester, 294 kilometres north of Sydney. Witnesses said the aircraft spiralled out of the sky after losing one wing, which landed in the town.

The dead were the pilot, Mr William James Ford, 49, of Cessnock, and passengers Mr Desmond Curran, of Kotara near Newcastle, Mr Bruce Bligh Turnbull, 55, of Aberdeen, near Cessnock, and Mr Dennis George Parkinson, 31, of Wallsend, west of Newcastle.
