Two people killed as plane crashes at golf course

Two people have died after a small plane crashed at Boonah Golf Club in Queensland, Australia, on 14 January. 

Paramedics discovered two men, one 69 and another 82, suffering from 'critical' injuries following the crash.

Both men died from their injuries a few hours later. 

The crash happened just before midday. 

No mayday call was made from the plane, police confirmed. 

It is understood the pilot had attempted to land at Boonah Airfield as the plane went down.

But the plane ended up crashing just metres away from where a number of people were playing golf at Boonah GC. 

Golfers who were playing on the course immediately called emergency services and paramedics rushed to the scene.

"We have police with the families of the two persons who were on that plane," said Acting Inspector Kerry Olsen. 

"We wish those families every possible amount of support."

Forensic Crash Unit Investigators are now working with Recreational Aviation Australia (RAAUS) officials to determine the cause of the crash.

They are urging anyone who witnessed the crash or saw footage of planes flying in the area at the time to contact the police. 

Our thoughts are with the families and friends of the two men that lost their lives.
