5 dead in plane crash at airport
LONG BEACH | A plane crash at Long Beach airport killed five people and injured a sixth on Wednesday, authorities said.
Airport director Mario Rodriguez said the six people were aboard the Beechcraft King Air craft. Five people were pronounced dead at the scene, and one man was rushed to a hospital with critical injuries, he said.
The plane crashed and burned during takeoff about 10:30 a.m., Long Beach fire spokesman Steve Yamamoto said.
Ian Gregor of the Federal Aviation Administration said the plane was departing for Salt Lake City when it went down.
The front half of the plane and its wings came to rest on a grass median between two runaways. The plane left a scorched trail dozens of feet long as it apparently plowed through the grass.

Most Americans who fall into poverty do not stay there very long, a new Census Bureau report says.
During the 36-month period between 2004 and 2006, 29 percent of the nation’s population lived in poverty for at least two months, the bureau said. But relatively few — 3 percent — stayed poor during the entire three years.
