Two people are in a critical condition after a light plane crashed at Orange airport, in western New South Wales.
The ABC understands the plane was doing circuits when it crashed on the northern side of the runway shortly after 7:00pm and burst into flames on impact.
An aviation expert said it was likely that the plane was doing a training exercise when something went wrong.
A man and a woman, both aged in their 40s, suffered critical burns when the small four-seater plane crashed.
The pair have been airlifted to Royal North Shore Hospital.
More to come.
