Small plane crashes at airport, catches fire; 2 are killed
MANSFIELD, Mass. (AP) — Authorities say an instructor pilot and his student died when the small plane they were in crashed at a Massachusetts airport.
Mansfield police say 31-year-old Sydney Miti, of Waltham, and 18-year-old Julian Lattermann, of Dover, were killed on impact.
Authorities didn’t say who was flying the Cessna 172. New England Cable News reports it had taken off from Norwood Airport around 11:30 a.m. Authorities say it crashed 15 miles away about an hour later at the Mansfield Airport.
State police and the Federal Aviation Administration will investigate, and the National Transportation Safety Board will determine the cause.
The Mansfield airport is about 45 miles south of Boston.
