Mother, 2 young sons among 6 dead in plane crash
GAITHERSBURG, MD - Federal investigators have recovered the cockpit voice and flight data recorders from a private jet that crashed into a Maryland house, killing all three aboard and a mother and her two young sons in the home.
Residents near a regional airport say they heard the plane flying much too low and struggling to remain in the air Monday.
Soon, it crashed into a two-story wood-frame home, which was immediately engulfed in a fireball.
The fuselage of the jet crashed into the front lawn of an adjacent home, which was heavily damaged by fire. Investigators believe one of its wings, which had fuel inside, sheared off and tore through the front of the home where the mother and children died.
Investigators plan to remain for up to seven days collecting evidence.
