A crop duster has crashed in Kirknie, near Townsville.

A farmer has walked away uninjured after crashing his crop duster in north Queensland.

The man in his early 20s crashed the light plane on Monday morning at Kirknie south of Townsville.

He was treated at the scene but didn’t suffer any serious injuries, a Queensland Ambulance spokeswoman said.

The crash was the third in the state’s north in 24 hours.

Six people survived after a plane crashed into a lake at the Lakeside Airfield near Airlie Beach on Sunday afternoon.

Meanwhile, a motorised paraglider pilot escaped injury – and the police – after clipping a tree and crashing into a carpark at a hunting competition near Mackay on the weekend.
