The pilot of a small plane was killed when the aircraft crashed at a Sussex County airport in northwestern New Jersey on Sunday morning.
The accident happened at about 10:25 a.m. Sunday at Trinca Airport in Green Township, where the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) says a NW-Freedom amateur-built aircraft crashed at the end of the runway.
Only person on board was the pilot, whose name has not been released after being pronounced dead at the scene, the New Jersey State Police said.
In a separate incident, a small plane crashed in Hunterdon County, New Jersey, on Saturday night, injuring the pilot and two passengers.
The Piper PA-28 took off from Blairstown Airport near Delaware Water Gap and was headed to Sky Manor Airport near Pittstown when it crashed at 10:45 p.m..
The pilot, Kyle Dalrymple, and two passengers, Clinton Campbell and Wendy Race, were conscious and out of the aircraft when officers arrived at the scene.
The three, whose hometowns were not released, were airlifted to hospitals, authorities said.
