Naval base link to jet plunge

Transmissions from a top secret naval base may have caused a Qantas flight to nose dive more than 1000 feet last month, Australian Transport Safety Bureau investigators say.

Investigators into Qantas Flight 72 from Singapore to Perth on October 7, are assessing possible sources of external electromagnetic interference, "including from the Harold E. Holt very low frequency transmitter near Exmouth in WA", the bureau's director of strategy and capability, Kerryn Macaulay, said.
