It actually hit a large factory outlet centre...the only fortunate thing was that it was before it was open for business, and apparently no one on the ground was killed.

 

But it's been a potential disaster dating back to the 70s when a light plane crashed into a nearby house, killing all bar one of the occupants.

 

It used to be Melbourne's main airport until the late 60s/early 70s when Tullamarine opened...essentially, in the middle of suburbia.

Trip to King Island is still on my wishlist, but with a little second thought or two.
