North Carolina — A twin-engine plane crashed Friday as it tried to land amid low fog at a small airport in northwest North Carolina, killing all six people on board, officials said.
Stephanie Conner, a Surry County emergency services shift supervisor, said investigators had confirmed there were no survivors.
No one on the ground was hurt, said Warren Woodberry, a spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration.
The King Air C90A split in half after falling into a grassy area between two homes about 11:30 a.m., the Surry County Sheriff's Office said.
The plane took off in Cedartown, Ga., Woodberry said, and the passengers were on their way to Primland, a hunting and golf resort in Meadows of Dan, Va., about 25 miles north of the Mount Airy airport, according to Kelvin Boyette, the airport manager.
