Details not to hand as how this aircraft crashed into a house so close to Virginia Airport, but it looks as if an engine failed, 7-8 people on board seriously injured.

That's really sad. I hope there were no fatalities...

Being on the plane I did not thought I would make it.The pilot warned us and said that one of the engines failed and that we must prepare for an emergency landing not knowing that it is on a roof.
One of the survivors.

I just considered it to be interesting. In fact, accident photo means injured people and bad reputation to flying, but I cannot anymore change my rating. I wish that those involved are in better shape than "Islander".
