VIDEO/PHOTOS: A plane has extensive damage after landing in the woods close to a Boy Scouts camp near Waterbury Airport on Tuesday afternoon. The Federal Aviation Administration said the plane crashed in Plymouth on its way to Waterbury Airport. Fire officials said dispatchers received a report of a plane crash around 1 p.m. The Connecticut Airport Authority describes the plane as a single-engine aircraft.
