Plane Crash Kills Two 

Officials say two people are dead after their small vintage airplane crashed in southern Maine. The Federal Aviation Administration said the wreckage of the 1946 BC-12 Taylorcraft plane was found at 6 a.m. Sunday in a field off Cape Monday Road in Harrison. The pilot and passenger were dead, but their identities have not been released pending notification of relatives. Chief Deputy Kevin Joyce of the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Department said the pilot was 68 and from Naples, and the passenger was 73 and from Harrison. Police received a call Saturday night that a plane that had taken off from the Limington airport had not returned after picking up a friend at a private airstrip in Harrison. Sheriff’s deputies, game wardens, state police and the Civil Air Patrol searched a densely wooded area in Harrison using a signal from the pilot’s cell phone. The crash is under investigation.
