Wow this is horrible, There is believe to be 5 dead after a small plane crashed right in to a house killing 5 I think that where on board,

The pilot sent a may day to Bigging hill, and tried to miss the houses.

The house that was hit belongs to a family but neighbours believe they may be on holiday! If so there lives may have just been saved,

2 people have been taken to the hospital suffering from burns,
100% fire on 1 house and part of another...

Shocking picture

There was a massive hole in the roof of the house, you can see where it went through," said Karl Mills, who saw the incident.

The private Cessna Citation 501 aircraft hit Broadwater Gardens, a residential area in Farnborough, leaving one house in flames.

A local resident told Sky News he believed the owners of the home that was destroyed were away on holiday.

The pilot sent a mayday over the radio before the crash. Another plane reported hearing it saying something about a vibration in the engine, and after he landed he turned around and saw the plane nose dive into the buildings.

A very similar thing happened to a house in the next neighborhood to mine when I was in grade school. It was afterschool and rainy and the piolet tried to land on the golf course but missed. Scary stuff.

Why don't planes have parachutes installed to lessen the affects of these crashes?

It was a Cessna Citation business jet. Not sure which one, so can't put the specs up here yet. There are a number of models, because it's a very popular little jet.

In some ways it was lucky that it hit a house, there is a hospital not even a mile away from the crash, if it would have hit that then this would be a whole different story,

Pilot had reported loss of power just before crash,He called in shorty after take off and asked to return.
