Mattock ‘smashed’ Australian military helicopter in 2011
AS Bryan Law pedalled his tricycle towards an Australian military helicopter, Graeme Clement Dunstan took photos with a digital camera, a court heard yesterday.
The Rockhampton District Court was told Dunstan, 71, aided Law's attack in which authorities say a garden mattock was used to smash an Australian military helicopter in July, 2011.
Dunstan has pleaded not guilty to damaging Commonwealth property. Law was also set to face three charges but died earlier this year.
Prosecutor Peter Richards said Dunstan drove a truck, carrying bolt cutters, the tricycle and mattock, to the Rockhampton Airport and assisted in the attack on the Tiger helicopter.
Dunstan said he and Law were looking for a way to put war on people's consciences.
The trial continues today.
