FAA: At least 2 die when small plane crashes at Minnesota airport

  • 0

FARIBAULT, Minn. - A small plane crashed at Faribault Municipal Airport on Sunday, killing at least two people and shutting down the airport for rest of the night.

Four people were on board when the plane went down, but Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Tony Molinaro said officials did not know the condition of the other two on board. Local authorities said there were no survivors.

The four-seat Cirrus SR22 burst into flames and scattered debris across the air field when it crashed just off the runway around 3 p.m.

"There's very little left," Faribault Police Chief Dan Collins said.

The Rice County Sheriff's office declined to immediately release further details, including the identities of the victims.

Molinaro said officials have not been able to find a flight plan, so they are unsure where the plane came from or where it was headed.

The FAA was to arrive on Monday to investigate.
