The pilot departed Maroochydore for a scenic flight at about 0830 EST. On return to Maroochydore at about 0930 he requested clearance for a touch and go landing on runway 18. The aerodrome controller (ADC) observed that the aircraft bounced slightly on landing, and the pilot elected to go around. During the go-around, the aircraft was observed to turn left at less than 100 ft AGL with a nose high attitude. The aircraft then descended steeply into the ground approximately 100 metres east of the runway. The two passengers received fatal injuries.
