2 killed when Pa. experimental plane crashes

FRANKLIN, Pa. (AP) - July 24, 2010

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Holly Baker says the plane went down about 11:20 a.m. Saturday in woods southeast of Franklin/Venango Regional Airport in Sandy Creek Township.

State police in Franklin say both people on board were killed, but their names aren't being released.

The plane was a Nadiq, a fixed-wing, single-engine craft generally built by hobbyists and amateurs.

The FAA is investigating what caused the crash. Baker had no further details.
