Emergency services are on site. Two passengers described by eye witnesses as ‘alive’ are being taken by air ambulance to Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley and the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow.
The area has now been closed down as police and Air Accident Investigations officers are brought to the scene.
The air craft was part of an annual tour of the area by German pilots. There were eight planes as part of the group. Seven of the aircraft are believed to have gone to Oban Airport immediately after the incident.
