Britten-Norman BN-2 Islander plane crashed into residential area, 6 Dead

A Britten-Norman BN-2B-27 Islander, CC-CYR crashed in a residential area of Puerto Montt, Chile, and burst into flames.
The aircraft impacted a house, 400 m west of the runway at Puerto Montt-Marcel Marchant Airport. The house caught fire and both occupants were injured.

The plane plummeted after getting entangled in power lines shortly after take-off from La Paloma airport in Puerto Montt, a port city 1,000 kilometers (600 miles) to the south of the capital Santiago, said Harry Jurgensen, the governor of the Los Lagos region.

Local television pictures showed the house, which caught fire after being hit by the plane, completely gutted.

Authorities did not reveal the identity of the victims but said the pilot was amongst the dead — two women and four men.

No one was in the house when the plane hit.

The aircraft was owned by the “Archipielago” company, which operates commercial flights in a region that is difficult to access.
