We just wanted to express our condolences to the families of those killed in the tragic plane crash that killed five people on their way to King Island.

According to reports, the pilot and four passengers of the small plane that left Essendon Airport yesterday were killed when it crashed into the DFO stores that run next to the Tullamarine Freeway nearby.

The Age reports that the four passengers were a group of four friends out in Australia with their wives on holiday and playing some of Australia’s best golf courses along the way.

All four were from Austin, Texas. The golfing buddies were headed to King Island to play golf, having already played at the Royal Melbourne Golf Club on Sunday and Cheltenham’s Kingston Heath Golf Club on Monday.
