The bodies of two of the three people, two children and a pilot who were missing, have been recovered after a small plane flying from Teterboro, New Jersey, to the Tweed-New Haven Airport in Connecticut crashed into two homes in East Haven.
According to WTNH, the plane was in communication with air traffic control and did not make a distress call before the plane went down.
One of the homes, which first responders say is totally demolished, is currently believed to contain two children, a 13-year-old and a 1-year-old.
The plane, which is described as a Turbo Commander 690B, hit 64 and 68 Charter Oak Avenue and set a car on fire when it crashed. The pilot is also currently unaccounted for.
Haven't recovered anyone. "Presume very bad outcome for two people within the house"
