<p>The aircraft crashed close to the desert hamlet of McKinlay, which is located more than 1,600 kilometers (1,000 miles) northwest of Brisbane, the state capital of Queensland.</p>
<p>According to officials, it was being used for mapping flames, as there are now over a dozen active fires in the state.</p>
<p>The Australian Transport Safety Bureau will look into the crash’s cause, which is still unclear.</p>
<p>Australia is experiencing its worst bushfire season since 2019–2020, when a series of uncontrollably destructive fires tore through large tracts of forest, claimed millions of lives, and engulfed towns in toxic smoke.</p>
