SYDNEY (Reuters) – Australia’s transport safety investigation agency said yesterday it plans to raise a seaplane that crashed into a Sydney river on New Year’s Eve, killing six people, including the chief executive of British catering giant Compass Group Plc. Australian Transport Safety Bureau Executive Director Nat Nagy said investigators would probe several lines of inquiry, including a close look at the plane’s avionics and maintenance record and the pilot’s background and experience. Mr Nagy said investigators would also look for any other electronic devices that may have been on board when the plane crashed on Sunday, killing Compass chief executive Richard Cousins, 58, and four members of his family. The pilot, Gareth Morgan, 44, was also killed.
