The plane crashed and broke in two, said some reports. It split in half after crashing between two homes. Luckily, no one on the ground was injured, said Warren Woodberry, a spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration.

News reports said that the passengers in the plane were on their way to Primland, a hunting and golf resort near Dan VA, about 25 miles north of the Mount Airy airport. Apparently, the resort van was at the scene, awaiting its guests. Witnesses reported that the plane originally missed its approach while making its first attempt at landing and might have been circling back to try again. Tragically, there would be no second chance for the six people on board.
FAA records indicate the plane was registered to Blue Sky Airways in Dallas GA.
The area between the two homes was scattered with debris from the crash. One area resident said he was in the basement of his home when he heard a loud boom. He said it looked as if the plane just fell out of the sky.
