New Hampshire apartment building hit by plane, killing everyone on board


A small plane crashed Friday night into an apartment building in New Hampshire, killing everyone on board, officials said.

A single-engine Beechcraft Sierra slammed into a two-story building north of Dillant/Hopkins Airport in Keene just before 7 p.m., the FAA told the Post in an email.

No one was injured inside the building, the town of Keene said.

“Unfortunately, those on the plane perished,” the statement said.

Residents said the plane hit a nearby barn, causing it to burst into flames.

Video from the scene captures massive flames erupting and black smoke billowing from the building. An explosion is heard as rescue teams arrive at the scene.

Police could not release more information or how many people were killed in the accident, although a Beechcraft Sierra could hold up to six flyers.

Residents told WCVB the plane hit a storage barn next to the building, causing it to burst into flames.

“It was very scary, I mean I was sitting in the chair and I heard the big bang and then the house shaking,” resident Robin Guimond said.

Authorities have asked travelers to avoid the area until further notice as the emergency response continues.
