GROTON, Conn. (AP) _ A small airplane crashed into at least one house Monday while approaching an airport, killing both people on board, police and aviation officials said.

There were no immediate reports of any injuries on the ground.

State Police Sgt. J. Paul Vance said the plane may have struck other houses.

The Learjet went down about a half-mile from the runway at Groton-New London Airport, Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Jim Peters said. He said it had taken off from Farmingdale Republic Airport on New York's Long Island.

The twin-engine plane is registered to Jetpro LLC, a corporation based at New Hyde Park, N.Y.
