One person was killed when a small plane crashed in Whatcom County Monday night, according to the Sheriff's office. Crews received reports of an aircraft down around 10 p.m. in an area about five miles south of Bellingham International Airport. The Sheriff's office said the plane had lost radio contact with air traffic control. A U.S. Customs and Border Patrol helicopter found the wreckage in the Larabee State Park area near Chuckanut Mountain, using a signal from the plane's last known location and direction of travel. When firefighters arrived, they said there were trees down, but no fire. One person was confirmed dead.
