A small plane crashed into a multifamily home in New Hampshire Friday, killing both people on board.
The aircraft crashed shortly after it took off from the Keene Dillant-Hopkins Airport, according to NBC News. It’s being reported that the plane was a single-engine Beechcraft Sierra. 911 calls reporting the crash started coming in around 6:50 p.m.
Mayor George Hansel said during a news conference that two people were on board the plane. On Sunday, it was announced that both victims were men and pilot-rated. The victims’ names have not been released.
“I want to first and foremost express the city of Keene’s sympathies to the family members of those who passed away,” Hansel said.
Eight people live in the two-story building that contains four apartment units. The plane hit a garage attached to the building. Luckily, no one in the building was injured. The building sustained heavy damage, and aerial footage showed heavy smoke in the area more than two areas after the crash.
The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the plane crash alongside the National Transportation Safety Board. It was not immediately made clear what caused the plane to crash.
