A twin-engine plane crashed into a house in Madeira on Tuesday as it was heading back to Lunken Airport, killing the pilot, officials said. Officials identified the pilot as 62-year-old David Sapp. A man who lives behind the site of the wreckage said the sound of splintering wood was so intense, he thought his own home had been struck. Carter Waide ran outside, toward the wreckage in his neighbor's yard. The front end of the plane was obliterated, he said, adding "anybody that would have been in the first two seats didn’t have a chance." The plane burst into flames.
