Small plane crashes, kills six at Virginia Airport

A small private plane has crashed and killed six people while landing at a Virginia airport, according to reports. 

The accident occurred at Shannon Airport near Fredericksburg when the plane, which was reportedly attempting to land, pulled up at the end of the runway and continued flying to the end of the airport where it crashed into a line of trees, the AP reports.

The plane immediately caught fire.  Rescue workers were reportedly able to pull all six bodies from the wreck, but names of the victims have not been released, as police are waiting until family is notified.
