Small plane crashes into airport in Kansas, killing 4 people

AT LEAST four people have died after an airport crashed into a Kansas airport building on Thursday.

The twin-engine Beechcraft aeroplane lost power shortly after takeoff at 9:50am before crashing into a building at Wichita’s Mid-Continent Airport.

Wichita Fire Marshal Chief Ronald Blackwell told Fox News at least four people inside the building were killed and five others injured.


It’s reported three of the dead were inside a flight simulator in the building when the plane crashed and the fourth was the pilot.

A search of the building was halted early Thursday afternoon, after a portion of it collapsed.

Wichita Fire Marshal Brad Crisp said the search would resume as soon as the building was deemed stable.
