P51 Mustang Replica and had crashed near the Emu Gully Airstrip near Helidon, Plane crash believed to have killed pilot at Ireland


31000

WITNESSES have told of seeing a light plane plunge into trees and explode after apparent engine failure on take-off near Helidon today.

The male pilot, who was a plane buff and well-known in the area, is believed to have died in the crash about 9.30am today.

"My husband was riding his horse on the arena. He saw it take off,'' a nearby resident told The Courier-Mail.

"It was going off to the right a little bit then the motor just cut out and it started spluttering.

"It sounded like the motor blew up then it just went down into the trees and there was a big explosion.

"We rang triple zero straight away but it was a big explosion so I don't think whoever was flying it would have had any chance.''

The plane was a P51 Mustang replica and had crashed near the Emu Gully airstrip near Helidon, only about 20m to 30m from Whylaway Boarding Kennels.


A triple zero call about 9.35am on Saturday reported a single-engine plane had crashed at Helidon, east of Toowoomba, the Department of Community Safety says.

It is believed the Pilot was the only occupant and has died in the crash.

The plane had exploded on impact.

A man aged in his 30s suffered minor burns to his legs and smoke inhalation trying to assist the pilot.

The crash sparked a large grass fire which was brought under control
