The story - which ran in the Herald Sun and the Age said:

Two feared dead in light plane crash

Two men are missing feared dead after an ultralight aircraft crashed on a beach on the NSW north coast.

Witnesses saw the yellow plane crash into water off Tyagarah Beach, near Byron Bay beach, about 12.30pm (AEST), police said.
Westpac Rescue Chopper, Brunswick Surf Club and Byron Bay Surf Club rescuers retrieved debris from the water.

But the two men aboard the aircraft have not been found.

Recreational Aircraft Australia are assisting police with their investigation.

To put this in context. Local pilot Joe Scott and a tourist passenger died in an ultralight crash in March 2003. About 10 years ago the crash of a Cessna killed two and seriously injured two more.
