The pilot had asked to abort a landing just before the crash
At least one person is dead after a singe-engine passenger plane crashed in Milwaukee’s Lawrence J. Timmerman Airport on Wednesday, according to local news reports.
The plane burst into a fiery blaze after crashing onto the field.
The County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed at least one person is dead, reports WITI.
The plane, registered to Trustey Management Corp. in Boston, had radioed in for a “go-around,” or a request to abort landing, just before catching fire. The aircraft was manufactured in 2009.
Details on how many passengers were onboard or the cause of fire remain unknown.
