I've heard something about a Piper that crashed into a hangar in New Garden, maybe 4 dead.

The four people in the plane were killed. The plane was doing touch and goes and hit a hangar and caught on fire. I can't find an article yet but that was the report on the news this morning.

Can't find an article online either.

On a side note, there was a twin-engine Beechcraft crash on Saturday in Colorado that killed 3.

The four who passed away included two fathers and their two young sons. Tragic news. Here is a link from NBC10, the local Philadelphia news station:

God bless their families in this tragic time for them.

Sad news indeed. I wonder how the aircraft "touched" a hanger during take-off? Is there a hangar that is really close to a runway? Did they use up too much runway to take-off again and didn't get sufficient altitude?

I was just looking at a photo on Airnav.com and it appears that the runway is parallel to all buildings. I am pretty sure it was the correct airport as it was the only one listed in Chester County.

I just looked again and saw I had the wrong airport. It is KN57, New Garden Airport. There are hangars located to the side of the threshold, take a look:

God bless them and their families.

It's an absolute tragedy to lose two generations in a single incident.

Absolutely devastating.....
