Two dead in Mount Isa plane crash

Two dead in Mount Isa plane crash Police believe the Cessna 210, which is registered to a NSW company, crashed about 26 kilometres north-east of Mount Isa Airport on Sunday afternoon. About 4.30pm, a rescue helicopter crew told police the plane's wreckage had been found after a distress beacon was activated. "It is believed two men were on-board at the time of the incident and pronounced deceased at the scene," police said. The forensic crash unit is helping the Australian Transport Safety Bureau with its investigation. In a statement on Sunday night, the ATSB said the light plane had been conducting a survey flight when it had an accident.

Debris believed to be from an aircraft has been found off the Gold Coast, after a vintage aircraft went missing this afternoon.

The private plane took off from Southport Airfield about 10am for a 30 minute scenic flight.

It was reported missing at 1.15pm when it hadn't returned.

Boats, jet skis and rescue helicopters spent the afternoon searching its likely flight path, near Stradbroke Island.

The aircraft is a Yak 52, a Soviet era training aircraft which is often used for scenic flights.

It's understood the pilot took a friend for a flight.

Australian Maritime Safety Authority confirmed it had started a search and rescue operation.

More to come.
