Washington, May 6 (Xinhua) Two people were killed after a single-engine plane crashed into another unoccupied small aircraft on the ground at the Lantana airport in Palm Beach County, Florida Wednesday, authorities said.
County Fire Rescue Department spokesman Don Delucia told reporters that it appeared that the first plane lost power during take-off and was making an emergency landing when it struck the parked plane.

The impact caused the first plane to spin around and come to a rest underneath a storage trailer.

The two fatalities are on the first plane and no one on the ground was injured, authorities said.
