Wisconsin recorded its third plane crash in a week, after a small pirvate aircraft burst into flames Wednesday after crashing on Milwaukee’s northwest side. The single-engine plane crashed just after 6 p.m. at Milwaukee’s Timmermann Airport.
Killed in the crash were the chief operating officer of Summit Partners, a Boston capital investment firm, and his daughter. The firm released a statement announcing the death of Joseph Trustey and daughter Anna, saying the pair were traveling to Wisconsin for a college visit tour.
The FAA and National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the crash.
Eight people have died in Wisconsin plane crashes this past week. Two Kentucky men were killed last weekend when a home-built plane crashed in Kenosha County on its way to the E-A-A show in Oshkosh. On Monday night, four Hudson area men were killed when their plane crashed and burned in Polk County on the way to a golf outing.
