03/31/11 124 W, 1 I - + 13 - 5 Plane Versus House in High Point


Two people were killed yesterday when their twin-engine Hawker Beechcraft BE58 clipped a house and struck a second, while attempting a landing in bad weather at nearby Piedmont Triad International Airport. The occupants escaped the home safely. High Point, Greensboro, and Guilford County fire departments were on scene. Perhaps readers can add incident details.

Next question, wonder how many plane versus house incidents have occurred around Raleigh-Durham International Airport over the years and decades. Guess my (outdated) timeline of RDU CFR history would tell that quickly enough. The below image exemplifies the reported weather conditions at the time of the crash. Click to enlarge:
