It is believed four American passengers were onboard, travelling to King Island for a golf trip when the plane experienced engine failure shortly after takeoff.

The experienced pilot, aged in his 60s, was able to make a mayday call when the plane lost power before the plane nosedived into the rear of the Homemaker Centre.

"A number of people have died as a result of what is the worst civil aviation accident that our state has seen for 30 years," assistant police commissioner Stephen Leane said.

There were five people on the aeroplane, and at this stage it looks like nobody has survived the crash.
