Four people are confirmed dead after a twin-engine plane crashed into a home near Tweed-New Haven Airport in East Haven late Friday morning. The victims’ identities have not yet been disclosed. At least three people, including two children, were missing as of late Friday night. Our ABC affiliate in Seattle, KOMO-TV, is reporting that a former Microsoft executive, Bill Henningsgaard and his son were on the plane that crashed. Henninsgaard was a Microsoft Vice-President for 14 years. He was involved in another crash in 2009 when the plane he was flying had engine trouble and wound up in the Columbia River in Washington. Friday’s crash happened around 11:20 a.m. at 64 and 68 Charter Oak Ave. That is north of Tweed-New Haven Airport, along the approach for one of the runways.
