FAA: In-air crash kills 2 in central Louisiana

PINEVILLE, LA Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Lynn Lunsford says each of the single-engine Cessna 150s was carrying two people when they hit about 2:30 p.m. Saturday. The collision happened less than a mile from Pineville Regional Airport. Both planes crashed into woods.

Lunsford says both of the people who died were in the same plane. He says the occupants of the second plane were taken to a hospital, but he did not know how badly they were hurt.

The airport is on Lake Buhlow (BYOO-low), a popular recreation area where boat races were scheduled Saturday.

Lunsford says a lot of flight training is done in the area, but he wasn't sure if students were involved.
