Plane wreckage found near Bulli Tops

 

Wollongong Police have confirmed the pilot of a light plane has been killed after crashing near Bulli Tops.

 

The man in his 50s took off from Wedderburn in Sydney's south-west late yesterday with residents hearing a loud bang overhead between Bulli Tops and Sublime Point last night, sparking a major search.

 

The plane was located just before 8.30 this morning.

 

Inspector Phil O'Neill from Wollongong Police says work will now begin to retrieve the body and the wreckage.
