The crash happened at Newtownards Airport on the Portaferry Road at 20:20 BST on Tuesday.

The victims were members of the Ulster Flying Club.

The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) said it is investigating on behalf of the coroner.

A spokesperson for the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) said it had sent a team of inspectors to the accident site.

A PSNI spokesperson said its investigation was separate from the AAIB's and appealed for anyone who witnessed the crash or has footage to contact them.

Earlier on Wednesday, the Ulster Flying Club confirmed "with great sadness and regret" that two members had died in the crash.

"Our thoughts at this most terrible time are with the families and friends of the two people involved," it added.

The Northern Ireland Ambulance Service (NIAS) said in a statement on Tuesday that it had despatched two emergency crews, a doctor and ambulance officer to the scene after a 999 call.

"No patients were taken from the scene," the statement added.
