THE bodies of two men killed in a plane crash on Friday near Lismore, at South Gundurimba, have been taken for a post mortem.

A NSW Police spokesman said the bodies of the two men, a flight student, 40, and an instructor, 47, were removed from the wreckage late yesterday afternoon and will be examined to confirm how they died.

While the names of the men have not been formally released by police, media has reported that the flight student, also the owner of the plane, was Christopher Bowles of Currumbin.

Mr Bowles was a mechanic who owned Chris Bowles Automotive and ran an internet site thecarnut.com.au.
