Two men believed to have been a pilot and his passenger have been killed after an ultralight plane crashed into a golf course northeast of Tokyo.
The two-seater plane went missing on Saturday after it took off from an airfield in Ibaraki prefecture.
The wreckage of the plane was found at a nearby golf course early on Sunday with the two victims, aged 59 and 57, in the cockpit, a local police spokesman said.
They were unconscious and were later confirmed dead, the spokesman said.
Police and aviation authorities were investigating the cause of the crash.
