Plane crash in Connecticut hits building, huge plumes of smoke seen

/ 09:36 AM September 02, 2021

A plane crashed into a building in Connecticut on Thursday morning, exuding huge fumes of smoke rising from the accident scene.

The Farmington Police Dept. in Connecticut immediately responded and confirmed the accident. Officials said the plane crashed at 111 Hyde Rd, Trumpf Inc. US head office – a German industrial machine manufacturing company. The building is approximately 1 mile from the Robertson Airport in Plainville, although it’s still unclear if the plane was trying to depart or land from the airport.

Local reports said that smoke was visibly seen coming from the building and that it’s unclear if there were people inside by the time the plane crashed.

Ambulances and the fire department were also at the crash scene though there aren’t reports of injuries yet. Also, a part of the city is currently under an order for evacuation after the plane crash.

Farmington police officers continuously give updates to the media on the crash scene. The police chief believes the plane is a small jet that encountered “trouble in the air” before falling. While the witnesses claim that the plane is having trouble after taking off, it hits the ground first before smashing the building.

Police officers also confirmed there were damages and power outages in the surrounding community due to the plane crash.

There are four people aboard the flight, as confirmed by the FAA. A local reporter recently confirmed that sources revealed nobody inside the building when the plane crashed, but there were no survivors on the plane. The media is still waiting for police confirmation about this.

Caleb Vaichus, an employee, working nearby, told WTIC-TV that he heard a loud explosion and immediately ran outside. “I saw black billows of smoke, I could see flames coming up from Trumpf Manufacturing, and as I got closer, I got pieces of fuselage, metal strewn throughout Farmington Avenue. The flames were extremely hot and got bigger. I couldn’t see any movement inside.”
