5 Killed in Melbourne Plane Crash

Four US citizens and an Australian pilot have died after their light plane crashed into a shopping center in Melbourne, Australia. The charter flight appeared to have had a “catastrophic engine failure” shortly after taking off from the small Essendon Airport, said police, BBC reported. Despite the destruction, no one was killed or injured on the ground. Victoria’s Premier Daniel Andrews said it was the worst civilian aviation accident in the state in 30 years. A spokeswoman for Spotlight, a retailer in the complex, said the plane crashed into its rear warehouse but all staff were safe. The US Embassy has confirmed that four passengers on the plane, bound for Tasmania’s King Island, were US citizens.
