WA Police have named the pilot of a sea plane that crashed into Perth's Swan River on Australia Day.
He was 52-year-old former Queensland father-of-three Peter Lynch.
A female passenger on board also died in the crash.
Peter's former partner, Laura Lynch, expressed her grief about the tragedy on Facebook.
"With great difficulty, I am unbearably saddened to confirm that my great friend and the father of my children passed after a tragic accident on the Swan River in Perth yesterday," she wrote.
Earlier Nine News reported Mr Lynch used to live on the Gold Coast.
