Virginia woman, 91, killed after aircraft crashes into condo

- At least one person was killed when a helicopter crashed Sunday evening into a residential townhome building in Williamsburg, Virginia near the campus of William & Mary, authorities said.

The National Transportation Safety Board plans a news conference Monday afternoon.

NTSB spokesman Eric Weiss said Monday that the aircraft was a Robinson R44.

NBC affiliate WRAL reports the death was confirmed in a statement from Virginia State Police.

The FAA says the pilot was the only person onboard the R44 helicopter when it crashed in the 1100 block of Settlement Drive, causing a fire within the condominium.

Virginia State Police said Jean Lonchak Danylko, a 91-year-old woman who lived in the complex, died in the crash.

"Everything in the house shook", Sweeney said. 'I don't think it's a sound I'll honestly forget'.

"The place starts erupting", Sweeney said.

The station quoted a witness as saying he heard a "big explosion", while others reported a helicopter flying low before the incident.

The Federal Aviation Administration tweeted that Aviation Safety Inspectors arrived in Williamsburg at about 7:30 p.m. Sunday.

Donald Johnson told a local newspaper how he was 10 feet away from the crash when it struck his building. "I was downstairs on the first floor when that thing hit and I had never heard a noise like that in my life".
