A Stoddard-Hamilton Glastar impacted trees and terrain during a go-around following landing attempt to a private turf airfield at the Greenfields Lane in Cootharaba, Shire of Noosa, Queensland.
One occupant was seriously injured and one of the two occupants received minor injuries and the aircraft received substantial damage.

Contributing factors
- On touchdown the aircraft reportedly encountered a left crosswind gust that turned the aircraft towards obstacles to the south of the runway.
- During the go‑around, the aircraft was not realigned with the runway and the best angle of climb airspeed was not achieved, resulting in a collision with terrain.
