Virginia plane crash: Cessna crashes killing two near Williamsburg

Virginia plane crash: Cessna crashes killing two near Williamsburg, Two people have died after a Virginia plane crash on the afternoon of Friday, April 19, 2013, according to the Inquisitr. The husband and wife from Nebrask, along with their dog which was on board, a died after their single-engine Cessna 210 aircraft crashed

The pilot was 54-year-old Joseph D. Brown and his wife, 52-year-old Susan S. Brown. Both died at the scene, and there were no injuries or damage to any property on the ground.

The Federal Aviation Administration states that the Virginia plane crash happened near the Williamsburg-Jamestown Airport at 4:53 p.m. on Friday afternoon. That is the location where the Browns were going to land.

Brown was said to be a very experienced pilot with over 4,300 hours in the air. He also had been in the Air Force and had experience in a B-1 and B-52. An investigation is ongoing because there is no idea what has caused the crash at this time.

A witness did see the Brown's plane go down, but actually caught sight of it as it began to experience problems.

“I heard him pulling for power, trying to power up,” Herbert Gordon, a retired captain with the Williamsburg Fire Department, told the Hampton Daily Press. “The plane banked like it was coming into the airport, and it looked like the wind pushed it up. It’s wings were perpendicular to the ground.”

“All of a sudden, he just did a nose-dive,” Gordon added. “Then I heard a crash.”
