An investigation is underway after a light plane crash in the state’s Central West today.
About midday (Monday 16 December 2019), the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) detected a distress beacon registered to a light plane in the Kanangra National Park at Oberon.
A NSW Ambulance helicopter was tasked and located the aircraft. A paramedic was then winched down to the site and located the pilot, a man believed to be aged in his 70’s, and sole occupant, deceased.
A crime scene has been established by officers from Chifley Police District and POLAIR and Police Rescue officers will retrieve the body.
