Jakarta Bintang, Lofty, dies in Indonesian plane accident
Posted by Vietnam Swans on August 29, 2012
Two days ago, the Sydney Morning Herald reported that:
“A search and rescue team has found the bodies of an Australian man and three other people in a plane wreck in Indonesia.
“Australian Peter Elliott, founder and general manager of Perth-based survey company Elliott Geophysics International, was on board a light plane that disappeared on the island of Borneo in Indonesia on Friday.”
Lofty, as Peter was known, was a life long player and supporter of the Jakarta Bintangs.
Accordingly, the Vietnam Swans emailed Jakarta Bintangs’ President, John Eddy, to extend our deepest sympathies and requested that our condolences be forwarded to the family and friends of Lofty, as well as the Bintangs.
The Bintangs replied that the boys would organise “an appropriate send-off (and) the kind words are very much appreciated”.
