Santa FE Airplane Crash – At least one person was killed when a small plane that had just taken off from a rural airstrip in New Mexico crashed into a house. As a result of a jet crashing into a house in Santa Fe, New Mexico, immediately after taking off from an airport, at least one person was killed and the house was completely consumed in flames.
