2 Killed In Plane Crash Near Western NC Airport

Two men have died after their single-engine airplane crashed a few miles from an airport in western North Carolina.

Multiple media outlets reported the plane came down near the
Transylvania County Airport near Brevard late Monday afternoon.

Airport owner Ken Allison says the pilot was maneuvering to land
the plane in overcast weather. Transylvania County emergency
services director Kevin Shook says the plane appeared to be trying
to turn when it crashed on a dirt road.

The victims' names have not been released. Federal officials were investigating.
