Two people were killed when a small airplane crashed south of Highway 7 and east of 120th Avenue in Broomfield on Friday.
The Mustang II, crashed in the Anthem Ranch area just before noon. The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating. The aircraft was a high-performance homebuilt aircraft designed for both sport and cross country flying.
A spokesperson for the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) said investigators were not sure of the plane’s flight plan and unsure where the flight originated from or what its final destination was.
Witnesses saw the plane just before it crashed flying quickly and lower than usual in the area and they said it was flying from west to east before the pilot attempted to head north toward the Erie Airport and crashed.
A preliminary report could be released soon, but the official report could take several months. The identities of the two people on board have not been released at this time.
