Two men have died after a suspected mid-air collision between two light aircraft in Queensland.
The crash occurred at Kybong, south of Gympie, on Wednesday afternoon.
It’s believed aircraft collided and plummeted to the ground at a property, killing an 80-year-old Caboolture man and a 77-year-old Glenwood man.
Police are investigating what caused the crash.
“The evidence is pointing towards the fact that each aircraft likely had a single male occupant and both males are deceased,” said Inspector Brad Inskip.
“We will be looking into the possibility that there was a collision mid-air, but it’s very early days and we’re really not sure.”
Inskip believes the aircraft are a single-occupant glider and an ultra-light plane.
Police, paramedics and firefighters have attended the scene.
A man who lives on a neighbouring property witnessed the incident.
“We were sitting on the verandah having a cuppa, and we heard a big bang,” he told 7NEWS.
“We thought that didn’t sound like a gunshot, and we looked up and saw white bits of plane falling out of the sky.
“It was already broken up … I didn’t see much of the second plane.”
He said he immediately rang triple-zero and police were quick to attend.
Police are preparing a report for the Coroner, while transport authorities will also investigate.
