Grave Location – Congregational A-22.
Colin Teede was killed on 29 November 1933 in Bunbury’s only fatal plane crash, which occurred at Picton Junction. Colin had requested to accompany the Pilot on a brief joy flight over Bunbury, prior to the plane flying onwards to Perth.
Unfortunately the plane experienced a mechanical mishap and fell to the ground, killing Teede and the pilot Stanley Waldo Catlett.
Investigations revealed that Catlett only held a British Pilot’s licence and had flown the Australian Aero Club Moth VH- UGO without authorization.
Colin Teede is interred in the Bunbury General Cemetery.
