ALL three people involved in Tuesday's shooting incident at The Caves worked for the Royal Flying Doctor Service.

Yesterday the service's CEO Nino Di Marco flew into Rockhampton where he delivered a heartfelt message.

"All of us at the Royal Flying Doctor Service (Qld Service) are deeply saddened and shocked to hear the news of this terrible tragedy in Rockhampton," he said. "The incident that occurred late Tuesday afternoon was a leisure activity on a private property. It was not work-related.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with their families, friends and colleagues and we ask that everyone respects their right to privacy and opportunity to grieve at this difficult time."

He said Lindsay Hart (wounded) and Greg McNaughton (killed) were pilots and Greg's son Tim (killed) was an apprentice engineer based in Alice Springs.
