It is understood the pilot was still trapped an hour after the crash.

Two people have been trapped inside the wreckage of a light plane after it stalled upon landing and crashed into bushes at Caloundra Airport on Australia's Sunshine Coast in Queensland.

The other trapped passenger had "significant lower limb injuries".

Two occupants - a man and a woman - freed themselves from the wreckage.

After the woman flagged down a passing motorist, authorities were notified around 2:30 Friday afternoon, but the crash actually happened in the morning.

They have been taken to hospital with minor injuries.

Queensland Fire and Emergency Service confirmed one person was freed from the plane after the crash while crews worked to free the second person trapped. The Federal Aviation Administration is on the way to the site to investigate the cause of the crash.

All emergency services are at the plane which is located at the far end of the runway.

The plane is reportedly a private aircraft.
