Aviation accident experts will continue investigating the wreckage of a deadly plane crash in country Victoria.

The plane's pilot died when his light plane crashed in the perimeter of Yarram airport in the state's southeast on Wednesday.

Three experts from the Australian Transport and Safety Bureau (ATSB) arrived at the site on Thursday, hoping to find clues as to what caused the accident.

They will be at the site for two days, combing through the wreckage.

They will look at the weather conditions at the time of the accident, talk to witnesses and collect aircraft and pilot documentation.

The plane, a nine-year-old Jabiru j-170, was registered with Recreational Aviation Australia.

The pilot, aged in his 60s, was the sole occupant.

The ATSB will prepare a report after finalising its investigation.
