A man in his thirties and a young boy have tragically lost their lives following the crash of a small aircraft in Lilydale, New South Wales.

Authorities say that a kit plane collided with power lines before crashing and bursting into flames near Grafton on Tuesday morning.
Officials have confirmed that a man in his 30s and a young boy were killed in the crash of a homemade-type plane on a rural property at Lilydale. The incident occurred at approximately 9am after the aircraft clipped the powerlines and crashed next to the Clarence River.
Acting Insp Aaron van Schaik stated that the plane had departed from the Gold Coast on Monday, made an overnight stop at an unknown location, and then took off again on Tuesday morning.
Authorities are appealing for witnesses to the crash or anyone with information about the plane’s destination to come forward. The Australian Transport Safety Bureau is assisting with the investigation.
Registered nurse Kerry Monk, who was camping nearby, described the intensity of the flames and smoke. She called emergency services but realized she was unable to help anyone at the scene.
