A disabled pilot on a round the world adventure has died after crashing while trying to land in Thailand.

Mike Lomberg, 60, a former South African Air Force pilot who was crippled in a car crash 28 years ago, was coming in to land at Bang Phra airport on Sunday when the crash happened.

Video from the airport shows his plane descending toward the tarmac before it appears to clip some power lines, causing it to veer sharply left and into some trees.
