NTSB investigators are expected to arrive Sunday to survey the wreckage.

HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) – A single-engine aircraft crashed shortly after takeoff at Dillingham Airfield on Saturday morning, killing both people onboard.

Federal and local authorities are investigating the crash, which happened about 9:20 a.m.

One witness to the crash said he heard the aircraft’s engine “sputter” just before it went down.

Afghanistan Plane Crash: Conflicting Reports From U.S. And Taliban : NPR

A plane crashed Monday in Afghanistan’s eastern Ghazni province, and within hours, a swarm of conflicting reports had coalesced around the wreckage.

According to a U.S. official, the plane was a small American fixed-wing aircraft with two people on board, both of whom died in the crash. The official told NPR that the plane went down because of mechanical problems.

But that’s not the only account of the incident.

A spokesman for the Taliban, Zabihullah Mujahid, told NPR that insurgents with the group shot down the plane and that it had CIA officials on board. Earlier Monday, Mujahid referred to the plane on Twitter as an “enemy intelligence aircraft” and said the bodies of the intelligence officials were still lying near the crash site in the Sado Khelo region of Ghazni.

The militant group frequently exaggerates battlefield actions, and the claims could not be confirmed.
