Small plane crash near rural Maine airport leaves 3 dead

Small plane crash near rural Maine airport leaves 3 dead

The NTSB and FAA are expected to arrive Tuesday morning to continue the investigation. All three people on board were killed.

Police and federal authorities were investigating the crash of a small plane in rural ME that killed three people today after the aircraft departed from Canada.

The FAA said there were three people on board the plane.

The Canadian-registered plane departed from the Pembroke Municipal Airport and was enroute to Prince Edward Island when the pilot diverted to Greenville, but crashed as it approached the runway, officials said Monday.

The plane left from Pembroke Airport, which is about 90 miles (145 kilometers) northwest of Ottawa, near the provincial boundary of Ontario and Quebec. "We've had crashes where we lost one or two... but nothing like that", he said.

The National Transportation Safety Agency is looking into the accident and will investigate its probable cause.

State police said they were assisting local police at the crash site, which was in a grassy field area outside the airport.

"They may have been on an emergency flight when they came in", said Crandall, who got a call from the FAA's Boston office asking him to try and make contact with the plane, which had reported it was experiencing an emergency situation, while he was on his way to the crash scene. At that point it turned south, slowed to less than 200 knots and descended steadily for the next 12 minutes until the transmission ended in Greenville, a small town approximately 160 kilometres north of Augusta, Maine. In 2011, David Finnegan of Woburn, Massachusetts, died when the Cessna 172M he was piloting crashed near Greenville Municipal Airport.
