Caldwell Airplane Crash Kills 2

Authorities say two people were killed when a small airplane crashed on takeoff in Caldwell.

Caldwell Industrial Airport manager Rob Oates says that both passengers were killed when the homemade aircraft crashed Sunday morning.

He identified the airplane as a Kitfox, a popular single-engine airplane kit assembled by owners. The Federal Aviation Administration classifies such airplanes as experimental in nature.

Oates says FAA investigators were on the scene Sunday and an investigator from the National Transportation Safety Board was expected as well.

Officials say details on the passengers were not being released until after relatives are notified.
