Plane crashes in Dubai, kills pilot, co-pilot

The pilot and co-pilot of a small plane were killed in a crash Thursday, causing delays at Dubai airport, UAE, according to government officials. 

“An accident involving a small plane with four passengers occurred resulting in the death of the pilot and his assistant,” UAE government’s media office said in a statement on Thursday. 

The small Diamond Aircraft, owned by US tech giant Honeywell, reportedly crashed due to a technical malfunction.

“All operations at the Dubai airport are running smoothly after a slight delay and diversion of some flights as a precautionary measure to ensure security,” the government statement said.
