Font Size:

Five people were killed today in a plane crash at Monmouth Executive Airport in Wall Township when a Cessna 337 Skymaster broke apart near the runway during a low pass and spun out of control before crashing nose first, officials said.

The wreckage was spread across a wide, partially snow-covered debris field that initially hampered the investigation to locate all five of those on board the plane when it crashed shortly before 4 p.m. But by 7:30 p.m., Alison Duquette, spokeswoman for the National Transportation Safety Board said five victims were confirmed.
