Local flight instructorout of pocket

By EMMA CORNFORD

CLARENCE Valley Flying School chief instructor Stuart Campbell will be grounded for the next few days after his aeroplane was vandalised.

A window on his aircraft was smashed and a control surface on the wing was also damaged late on Saturday night as the craft sat in its hanger at the South Grafton airstrip.

Mr Campbell said the airstrip's engineer chased the two teenagers who he found at the hanger, but did not catch them.

"They've caused around $1500 damage," Mr Campbell said.

"There's also the loss of income because I have students to teach so that's another $1000 or so. They've certainly caused a bit of heartache."

He said this was the second problem at the airstrip in recent months; two parked cars were broken into recently.
