One man dead and another badly injured after light aircraft crash
Both men were inside a light aircraft which crashed on the Isle of Bute on Saturday afternoon.
A man has died after a light aircraft crash which left another man fighting for his life in hospital.
Both men were inside the aircraft which came down near a hotel in the Kingarth area of the Isle of Bute at 3.45pm on Saturday.
On Sunday Police Scotland said the two men, aged 63 and 52 years old, were taken by air ambulance to the Southern General Hospital and the Royal Alexandra Hospital respectively.
A spokeswoman for the force said: "Sadly, the 63-year-old man died within hospital earlier this morning. Relatives are aware and a report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal."
The 52-year-old man remains in a critical condition at the Royal Alexandra Hospital.
A video of the aftermath of the crash showed wreckage from the plane lying by the side of a road with the fuselage engulfed in flames.
A woman who was at the site of the crash, who did not wish to be named, said locals saw smoke billowing from the crash site.
She said: "A woman who was first on the scene said she saw the plane drop down then come up again.
"Then it dropped down and came up twice, and then she heard an enormous boom and saw lots of smoke."
She said the site of the crash was nearby the Kingarth Hotel, and said the crash "could have been another Clutha."
Firefighters who arrived at the scene on Sunday provided treatment to the two men before they were taken to hospital.
The Air Accidents Investigation Branch has sent a team to the area to investigate the incident.
Officers working on the investigation have urged any witnesses to contact them, and would like to obtain any video or mobile phone footage which may help their enquiry.
Police Scotland asked anyone with information to contact them on 101.
