CORRECTION: All that remains now of Frederick Valentich’s infamous flight is a plaque at Otway lighthouse commemorating his strange disappearance.
“IT IS hovering and it is not an aircraft.”
These are the last words anyone ever heard Frederick Valentich say before his radio cut off and he, and the aircraft he was piloting, were never seen again.
On October 21, 1978, a 20-year-old Valentich rented a single engine plane out of Victoria’s Moorabbin Airport with plans of heading to Tasmania’s King Island to catch seafood.
The only clue left behind was a radio conversation between him and Melbourne Airflight Service Controller, Steve Robey.
As the transmission went on things got even more unnerving, with Valentich reporting that the mystery aircraft was “playing” with him.
