After a pilot bound for Reston, Va., filled up with 148 gallons of fuel at an airport in Louisa County, Va., the Cessna was only a quarter of a mile from the airport when it slammed into a two-story home.
The plane and house were engulfed in flames. Eyewitness accounts indicate that the plane's engines failed.
The pilot of the twin-engine was killed. The only person in the house was fortunately in the basement. He was able to escape unharmed.
