SUFFOLK, Va., May 5 (UPI) -- Two people were killed when an experimental plane crashed near an airport in Suffolk, Virginia State Police said.

Investigators said the single-engine plane had tried to land several times Saturday before it went down less than a mile from the runway at Suffolk Executive Airport.

The victims' identities were not immediately known, but the aircraft was registered in Davidsonville, Md., police said.

The airport was hosting a weekend fly-in; however, organizers of the event told The (Norfolk) Virginian-Pilot the doomed plane was not signed up to participate.
