London: A 63-year-old man who was on board a light aircraft which crashed on the Isle of Bute in Scotland died in a hospital today while a second person aboard the plane was in a critical condition.

The man was airlifted to Glasgow`s Southern General after the aircraft came down near the airstrip at Kingarth yesterday afternoon.

The second person on board, a 52-year-old man, was taken to the Royal Alexandra Hospital and remains in a critical condition, the BBC reported.

The cause of the crash is being probed. It is believed the plane came down about one km from the airstrip, in the south of the island.

Police Scotland said it was working closely with the Air Accidents Investigation Branch. It has asked for any video or mobile phone footage which may help with the inquiry.
