At least 5 killed, 9 injured, in crash of World War II-era plane at Connecticut’s Bradley International Airport

At least five people were killed and nine were injured when a World War II-era plane crashed at Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks Wednesday morning shortly after it took off, sources have told The Courant.

The B-17 bomber crashed shortly before 10 a.m., bursting into flames and sending up a large plume of smoke that could be seen for miles. Officials said it crashed into a small building and tanks as it was trying to land.

State public safety Commissioner James Rovella would not say how many were killed. “There are fatalities of which I will not you the number yet," Rovella said at a briefing at the Sheraton at Bradley Wednesday afternoon.
