Two killed in Diamond accident south of Brisbane

Two men were killed early this morning when their aircraft crashed in the Scenic Rim, south-west of Brisbane. The aircraft took off from Archerfield airport just after 9am, for what is believed to be a training flight and crashed on a farm at Allenview near Jimboomba just before 10:00am.
The two men are believed to be an instructor and a trainee.
The plane was a Diamond DA 40, a four-seater aircraft, manufactured in 2006 and is owned by Aircrew Training and Support based at Springfield.
The cause of the crash is unknown at this stage but witnesses say the aircraft spiralled out of control before hitting the ground.
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau has investigators on site.

Aircraft Details are:
Operator: Aircrew Training and Support
Aircraft Type: Diamond DA 40
Engines: Textron Lycoming - Piston
Registration: VH-MPM
Serial Number: 40.674
First Registered: 18th May 2010

My thoughts and prayers go out to the immediate family and friends and of course everyone at Aircrew Training and Support.
