A light plane has crashed at a remote outback property in South Australia’s far north, police have confirmed, with emergency services now also responding to a separate incident involving another aircraft.

SA Police received reports this morning that a plane had gone down in a paddock at Mulgathing.

The location is the site of a sheep station about 700 kilometres north of Adelaide, and about 200 kilometres south-west of Coober Pedy.

The alarm was raised about 9:30am, but there has since been no official word from authorities about how many people were on board, nor their condition.

A Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) flight has now arrived at the scene, but further details remain unclear.

“Police and emergency services have responded to reports of a light plane crash in the state’s far north,” SA Police said in a statement.

“Emergency services are making their way to the scene of the crash and further details will be provided as they become available.”

Mulgathing is west of the Stuart Highway and near Tarcoola, and there is an airstrip at the 530,000-hectare property.

According to the website of the station’s operator, Jumbuck Pastoral, a Cessna plane is used to “facilitate mustering” on the property, “on the fringe of the Great Victorian Desert”.

Emergency services are also responding to a second incident involving a light plane in the state’s far north.

Initial reports suggest a pilot suffered minor injuries at a property at Evelyn Downs, 170 kilometres north of Coober Pedy.

Police and emergency services received a caIl for help about 2pm.
