Plane crash kills five in Germany
BERLIN (AP) — All five people on a small business jet that crashed near Frankfurt have been confirmed dead, German police said Friday.
Rescue workers discovered two more bodies amid the debris a day after the 12-seat Cessna with a pilot, co-pilot and three passengers on board crashed into a forest and burst into flames when trying to land at Egelsbach airstrip, Offenbach police spokesman Josef Michael Roesch said.
The twin engine Cessna 750 Citation X was registered in the U.S., German news agency dapd reported, but authorities have not said who owned or operated it.
Police had no immediate information on the victims’ identities or their nationalities.
