Plane Crash Kills Five In Melbourne

At least five people people, reportedly four US citizens and an Australian pilot, have been killed, after their light aircraft crashed in Melbourne, Australia.

Four US citizens and an Australian pilot have died after their light plane crashed into a shopping centre in Melbourne, Australia.

The charter flight appeared to have had a “catastrophic engine failure” shortly after taking off from the small Essendon Airport, said police.

Despite the destruction, no-one was killed or injured on the ground.

Victoria’s Premier Daniel Andrews said it was the worst civilian aviation accident in the state in 30 years.
