Sadly, a respected horseman from the Warwick Rodeo was one of two people to die in a plane crash at South Australia on the weekend.

The 59-year-old pilot also owned a horse stud at Greymare and a stockfeed company at Laidley.

The passenger, a 48-year-old Mum of five and retired Queensland police officer from Wynnum who made a last minute decision to switch planes, also died in the crash.

SA Police and Recreational Aviation Australia are investigating following the outback adventure that went horribly wrong for two much-loved Queenslanders.
