2 reported dead in Wisconsin plane crash

(MCT) — Local officials report that two people have died in the crash of a small plane near the Burlington, Wis., airport, an FAA spokesman said.

The crash of the single-engine Grumman AA1 happened about 1:26 p.m. near the airport as the ariplane tried to land, said Lynn Lunsford, a spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration.

There were two people on board, and local officials were reporting to the FAA that they both died, but FAA officials have not independently verified that, he said.

The airplane is registered to a man in Antioch, on the Illinois-Wisconsin border, according to FAA records.

Burlington officials referred questions to the Walworth County Sheriff’s Department, which was not immediately releasing information.
