AN Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) report into a fatal light plane crash near Mildura Airport in Nov­ember last year has been delayed by “competing ­priorities”.

Boeill Creek horticulturist Tony ­Mangan was the sole occupant in a Cessna 310 flying from Moorabbin ­Airport to Mildura when the plane 

made contact with powerlines and crashed in a vineyard about 2km from the ­runway.

The ATSB said the release of the draft investigation report to directly involved parties (DIP) for comment was now expected to take place in January next year.
