Here is another version which mentions a single aircraft that appears to be a 2 seater:


Police investigate fatal glider crash – Southern NSW 2 September 2007


A report is being prepared for the coroner following a glider crash which resulted in the death of a 64-year-old man in Towrang yesterday.


Emergency services were called to land adjacent to Carrick Road, Towrang, around 2pm following reports that a glider had crashed and two men were severely injured.


Police have been told that the glider, carrying two Queanbeyan men, was launched into the air with the assistance of a winch.


Moments later witnesses observed the glider bank to the left and crash into the ground.


A number of witnesses went to the aid of the two men, however, the 64 year old suffered significant injuries and died at the scene.


Ambulance officers took a 68-year-old man to Goulburn Base Hospital. He has since been transferred to Canberra Hospital suffering serious leg injuries.


Police from Goulburn Local Area Command attended and established a crime scene.


Specialist officers from the Aviation Branch and Crime Scene officers also attended and continue to investigate the incident.
