A World War II-era bomber crashed Wednesday while attempting to land at Connecticut’s largest airport, officials said.

Seven people are dead and at least six others were injured in the crash, according to reports.

Connecticut Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection Commissioner James Rovella said at a news conference that there were 13 people on board the plane at the time, including 10 passengers and three crew members, FOX News reports. Rovella added that one person was also on the ground in a maintenance facility when the plane crashed at Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks, Conn., located north of Hartford.

“Victims are very difficult to identify,” Rovella said, “We don’t want to make a mistake.”

The New England Air Museum is located near the airport. Airport officials said the plane was associated with the Collings Foundation, an educational group that brought its “Wings of Freedom” vintage aircraft display to Bradley International Airport this week.

Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont said the scene where the crash took place was “very bad.”

“My heart really goes out to the families,” he said.

A spokesperson from Hartford Hospital told Fox News that the facility has received six patients, with one arriving by Lifestar helicopter and the five others by ambulance.  Three people were being treated with critical injuries, two with moderate injuries, and one with a minor injury, officials said at a news conference.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with those who were on that flight and we will be forever grateful to the heroic efforts of the first responders at Bradley,” the foundation said in a statement to Fox News. “The Collings Foundation flight team is fully cooperating with officials to determine the cause of the crash of the B-17 Flying Fortress and will comment further when details become known.”


Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of everyone involved.

Rest in peace.
