  • Nick Norris and three grandchildren, Mo, Evie, and Otis

A man and three of his grandchildren were returning to Perth from a family holiday when they died on board the Malaysian Airlines jet that was shot down over Ukraine.

Nick Norris, 68, and the three youngsters were among seven West Australians who perished when a surface-to-air missile hit the plane, killing all 298 passengers and crew.

Flight MH17 was en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur when it came down in rebel-held territory near Ukraine's border with Russia.

Mr Norris's son, Brack, 24, said his father had been accompanying the children; Mo, Evie, and Otis Maslin aged 12, 10 and 8 respectively, home.

Their parents had remained in Amsterdam for a few more days but Mr Norris was bringing the children home to return to school.

Brack Norris described the situation as "surreal" and thought it was "ridiculous" when a sister called from Sydney earlier today to tell him the plane had been shot down.


Mr Norris, the managing director of management consulting firm Collaborative Systemic Change Pty Ltd, is survived by his son Brack, who is the company's marketing manager, and daughter Kirstin, a marine engineer with the Royal Australian Navy. He was a well-known member of the South Perth Yacht Club.
