Police wind up crash site probe

POLICE say they hope to soon complete their investigation at an isolated crash site in southeast Queensland, where a vintage plane went down killing six people.

Steep and difficult conditions have slowed the retrieval of the victim's bodies but police say they hope to hand over the site to Australian Transport and Safety Bureau (ATSB) later on Saturday.

Disaster victim identification police officers began the grisly task of retrieving the victims' bodies on Thursday, a day after the wrecked biplane was found in bushland in the Sunshine Coast hinterland.
