Two dead in Virginia small plane crash

Police say two people have died in a small plane crash in Virginia's Spotsylvania County.

The Free Lance-Star reports the blue-and-white plane had just taken off from Shannon Airport on Saturday evening when it crashed. A witness said it went straight up in a vertical climb and then corkscrewed into the ground. The fixed-wing aircraft landed in the River Heights Mobile Home Park.

Virginia State Police spokeswoman Corinne Geller says no one on the ground was injured. She said in an email that there were two confirmed fatalities.

Shannon Airport is a general aviation airport that only serves small planes and has no commercial flights.

Police have notified the National Transportation Safety Board. Spotsylvania County is located about 75 miles southwest of Washington.
