A Piper Mojave VH-PGW has crashed on approach to Bankstown Airport, Sydney (YSBK)

Local news confirm a fatality.


Aircraft reported engine trouble, before declaring that they would not make the field, and asking Bankstown Tower for any suggested roads to land on. Aircraft reported unable to sight the N7 freeway. Tower then suggested a nearby raceway which also was not able to be sighted.

Looks like LiveATC has the audio.
