A pilot has been taken to hospital after the aircraft he was flying clipped a house and crashed into the yard.
Paramedics arrived at a property in Pacific Haven, west of Hervey Bay, to reports an ultralight aircraft had crashed just after 11am on Wednesday.
The pilot and sole occupant of the aircraft, a 68-year-old man, was treated for head and ankle injuries and transported to hospital in a stable condition.
Initial investigations suggested the man had taken off from a Pacific Haven airstrip to return to Childers, south of Bundaberg, when crosswinds struck the aircraft, causing it to clip the top of a Marina Drive property and crash into the yard, police said.
