2 dead in US after plane crashes into houses


NEW YORK CITY, New York: Two people were confirmed dead and others feared missing Friday after a twin-engine light aircraft crashed into two houses in the US state of Connecticut. The Rockwell International Turbo Commander 690B crashed on approach into Tweed New Haven Airport before noon, the Federal Aviation Administration said. It was on a short flight from Teterboro Airport outside New York City, it said in a statement. The aircraft, making an instrument approach in foul weather, slammed into two clapboard houses in a densely populated section of East Haven, with two children—one about a year old, the other 13—inside one of the homes.
