At least seven people have died this Wednesday after a World War II plane crashed at Bradley International Airport in the US state of Connecticut.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) of the United States has detailed that the incident has occurred around 9.54 (local time) at the end of the runway, according to the American ABC News.

On board the plane were thirteen people, including 10 passengers and three crew members. Authorities have confirmed the deaths of seven people and seven others, including an airport employee who was on the ground, have been injured.

The injured have been transferred to Harford Hospital and doctors have ensured that three people are in critical condition.

Just five minutes after taking off, the pilot reported a problem, tried to get back on track and after several laps he tried to land, but lost control of the plane, according to authorities.
