2 crew, 8 passengers killed in Texas plane crash

DALLAS (AP) – Federal officials say two crew members and eight passengers were killed when a small, twin-engine plane crashed into a hangar during takeoff at a Dallas-area airport.

National Transportation Safety Board Vice Chairman Bruce Landsberg said the plane crashed at 9:11 a.m. Sunday at the Addison Municipal Airport. He says, “We don’t know a lot about the people on board at this point.”

Landsberg says the plane was headed to St. Petersburg, Florida.

He also said the plane had recently changed hands so it’s not clear what the proper tail number currently was.

Jennifer Rodi, the NTSB’s lead investigator on the accident, said it had previously been owned by a private charter company in Chicago.
