It’s understood the Grant Treton Park rangers recovered two bodies via a long-line aerial operation, yesterday afternoon, after the aircraft failed to return to its base.

The name of the second occupant, a passenger in the glider, has not been released - until next of kin notifications have been completed.

 Kristine was married to British bass-baritone Norman Bailey.

Our condolences are with her family, friends, students and colleagues.
