Officials say at least two people are dead after a small plane reported losing engine power and crashed into a building at a Kansas airport.
Wichita Fire Chief Ronald D. Blackwell says at least four other people were taken to a hospital and five more are unaccounted for after the Thursday morning crash at Mid-Continent Airport, from which huge plumes of black smoke could be seen for miles around the city.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Tony Molinaro says a twin-engine Beechcraft King Air reported trouble just after takeoff Thursday morning.
Molinaro says the plane crashed into the building on airport property while attempting to return to the runway.
