One person was killed when a small plane fell down on Long Island on Wednesday afternoon.
According to a Huntington City representative, the two-seat single-seater crashed at 2:00 pm on Northcote Drive near Melville's Spagnoli Road.
It is not clear if the person who died was aboard the plane.
According to one aviation source, the aircraft involved in the crash was a T6 Texan, a World War II high-performance trainer. The plane was outside Republic Airport and was considered a SkyTyper aircraft that was part of the canceled Jones Beach Air Show last weekend.
