Two dead in small plane crash in Connecticut
East Windsor, CT. —
Investigators with the national transportation safety board will be on scene in East Windsor, Connecticut, just north of Hartford Wednesday morning.
That's where a small plane crashed Tuesday, killing the two people on board.
The crash happened in a wooded, residential area, about 15 minutes from the Massachusetts border.
Longtime friends of the two on board say they were both pilots, with at least 20 years combined experience, if not more.
They say whatever went wrong had to be quote "catastrophic."
Airport officials confirm the single engine plane was taking off from Skylark Airpark.
It came down about a half hour later on private property around 6:45 p.m.
Officials report no subsequent fire, no fuel leak and no damage to the nearby homes.
They say the plane is on the ground, mostly intact, nose down, tail up.
As for what went wrong in the air, that will be for the NTSB to investigate.
