WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn. (AP) — A World War II-era B-17 bomber carrying 13 people crashed and burned at the Hartford airport in an aborted takeoff attempt Wednesday, killing an undetermined number of those aboard, authorities said.

The four-engine, propeller-driven plane struggled to get into the air and slammed into a maintenance shed at Bradley International Airport as the pilots circled back for a landing, officials and witnesses said.

The article goes on to state the following:

It had 10 passengers and three crew members, authorities said.

The Associated Press reported that at least six people were taken to the hospital, but their condition is unknown.

According to multiple reports, at least one person on the ground was injured as well.

Connecticut Public Safety Commissioner James Rovella said it is too soon to say how many people have died, adding that some of those on board suffered severe burns.

“The victims are very difficult to identify,” Rovella said. “We don’t want to make a mistake.”

NBC Connecticut report that “Multiple people are dead and at least 14 people have been taken to hospitals.”
