In 1955 Stuart Lester landed a light aircraft on Lake Pedder's vast beach. He was one of the very early pilots to do so. Candidly, Stuart recalls flying into Tasmania's south west. At one stage he even flew the very Tiger Moth that activist Brenda Hean and pilot Max Price were to tragically disappear in, en route to Canberra in an attempt to save Lake Pedder from flooding.
