A man in his 20s and a woman in her 30s were both injured when their plane crashed soon after takeoff from Boeing Field in Seattle, Washington, at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, according to the Seattle Pi.
A student pilot and a flight instructor were aboard the twin engine Piper when it attempted to take off from the short runway and was briefly airborne before coming back down and hitting an unmanned parked plane.
The Piper flipped over, and both planes caught fire. The student pilot and flight instructor were able to escape the wreckage with minor injuries, according the Seattle Fire Department.
A worker at the airport saw the aftermath of the crash.
"It went from nothing to black clouds," he said. "Planes weren't taking off, and we were like, 'Whoa, what's going on?' There was no way you couldn't see the smoke if you were on the freeway or at the airport."
The airport worker said that seeing the two severely-burned planes was a shock.
"Obviously two planes are burnt to a crisp right in front of your eyes so you're pretty taken back," he said.
The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board have been notified of the incident and will investigate.
