Light plane flips on landing in Queensland

The plane is believed to have stalled before coming to a halt upside down in bushes past the runway shortly before 12pm on Saturday morning

Emergency services say the plane stalled and then flipped on the runway as it landed. It is understood the pilot was still trapped an hour after the crash.

Two people were hurt, a man and woman.

Those three were in a stable condition on the Sunshine Coast.

"Enquiries are underway to establish the cause of the accident, that includes the Australian Transport Safety Bureau being advised, and we're making the necessary arrangements through our forensic crash officers to investigate the cause of the accident", he said.

Two people have been trapped in the wreckage of a light plane which flipped on landing at Caloundra Airport on Queensland's Sunshine Coast.

Over the last season he showed how his qualities suit English football and our style of play. Billing scored two goals in 24 appearances for the Terriers last season.

The crash happened about a half mile away from the road near a field. Around 2 p.m., deputies said a woman in the plane walked nearly a mile away and flagged down a passing vehicle.

The crash site is close to the Lenawee County airport.

It took 70 minutes to extract the first person from the South African-designed Sling 4 piston-engine kit plane and "considerably longer" for the second, Queensland Ambulance Service spokeswoman Kristy McAlister said.

The plane is reportedly a private aircraft.
