From our ABC today:
"Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) spokesman Mike Barton told reporters it was a "high impact crash site".
"The plane is not in a condition that you would recognise as a plane," he said.
"So they have hit the ground exceedingly hard and the aircraft is fundamentally destroyed."
Mr Barton says it is likely the six people on board were killed on impact.
He says their next of kin have been notified and the grim discovery will be felt by the vintage aircraft community.

"I personally knew the pilot and I think the antique aeroplane community are going to be quite upset for a while that they've lost him," he said."
RIP
