Houses in East Haven crash will be torn down

Posted: Updated:

EAST HAVEN, Conn. (AP) -- Authorities are making plans to demolish the two East Haven houses struck by an airplane Friday in a crash that claimed four lives.

The Connecticut Post reports the demolition will take place this week.

The houses were badly damaged when the 10-seat propeller-driven plane crashed on its approach to Tweed New Haven Airport.

Thirteen-year-old-old Sade Brantley and 1-year-old Madisyn Mitchell were killed when the plane hit their home, setting it on fire.

Also killed were the pilot, 54-year-old former Microsoft executive Bill Henningsgaard, and his 17-year-old son, Maxwell.

Officials have said emergency repairs were done after the crash to make the homes safe for the crews that recovered the bodies.

A preliminary report on the crash from the National Transportation Safety Board is expected within 10 business days.
