6 killed in crash of plane trying to land amid North Carolina fog

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. Investigators had confirmed there were no survivors, said Stephanie Conner, a Surry County emergency services shift supervisor. 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 near the Mount Airy airport around 11:30 a.m., the Surry County Sheriff's Office said.
