TWO men have been killed after two planes crashed mid-air.

Emergency services rushed to the scene at a farm in Queensland, Australia, following the smash.

A plane and a glider it was towing collided before plummeting to the ground in Kybong, according to local reports.

It is understood one man from each aircraft died following the crash.

One witness said he heard a "big bang" before debris fell to the ground.

He told 7News: "We thought that didn’t sound like a gunshot, and we looked up and saw white bits of plane falling out of the sky.

“It was already broken up. I didn’t see much of the second plane.”

Police are investigating the cause of the crash, which happened at about 2.50pm local time (4.50am GMT).

Inspector Brad Inskip said: "The evidence is pointing towards the fact that each aircraft likely had a single male occupant and both males are deceased.

"We will be looking into the possibility that there was a collision mid-air, but it’s very early days and we’re really not sure."
