Just posted on the news. According to sources, she crashed into a building at the Bradley Airport outside of Hartford, CT with 13 people on board. Details are still coming in.

No word on cause or outcome right now, but the aircraft is seen to be burning fiercely.

Story via WFSB - I hope to God everyone was able to get out safely.

Here's some more recent video. It appears that she didn't burn initially upon her crash, at least the top video would appear to show. The second video attached shows her tail still intact, so hopefully the info I found about everyone on board being lost isn't true and was only speculation:

That's awesome news! It could have been so much worse!

Also, I have combined similar threads into this one.

The news says 4 people were transported to the hospital - but how many were on board is unknown. Keep praying.

Crushed to hear that there was a loss of life. I hope the injuries aren't serious.

Crawled through 9-0-9 many times, she'll be missed. I was looking forward to their visit to Morristown next week.

The CF runs such an impressive operation its so sad to see this happen.

Keeping fingers crossed all on board are OK.


Gutted for Collings Foundation, I had a flight on '909' as well as the B-25 back in 2007 while on a visit to see friends in California.

grabbed this screen shot from live feed at the airport. Seems a bit of her (tail, port wing) are still intact.

This is such tragic news. Glad to hear that there were no fatalities. The 17 is a total loss and hopefully will be rebuilt (like how Liberty Bell is currently being restored). Such a shame to hear.
