Six People Die In Private Aircraft At US Airport

Six people have died in a plane crash when a pilot was attempting to land a small private aircraft.

The crash happened at Shannon Airport in Fredericksburg, Virginia yesterday. Despite an attempt to land, the aircraft was pulled back up into the air towards the end of the runway.

"It's a small private aircraft that had come in for a landing. It got to the end of the runway. It pulled up, banked to the left and crashed in the trees and caught fire," said Corinne Geller, public relations manager for the state police.
