Guido Zuccoli

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki



Guido Zuccoli was a pilot, civil engineer, and Northern Territory businessman. He founded Steelcon Constructions in 1967. He is acknowledged as one of the founders of the warbird movement in Australia. He won numerous aerobatic awards, and was also involved in the restoration and collection of classic aircraft.[1]

Death[edit]

Guido died in a plane crash at Tindal Airport on 6th March 1997, in a newly restored T-6 which he was flying back home to Toowoomba. There had been no prior warning of impending problems. At about 200ft after takeoff from the Tindal Air Base in the NT, the aircraft supercharger suffered a catastrophic failure due to oil starvation caused by a faulty bearing.[2][1]

Legacy[edit]

  • The Guido Zuccoli Flyover at the Bagot Road - Stuart Highway intersection in Darwin is named in his honour.[2]
  • The Palmerston Suburb of Zuccoli, and several businesses and organisations therein, are named after him.[2]
