The pilot of the plane, William Larson, 61, of Vienna, Va., was transported to Inova Fairfax Hospital for treatment of serious, but non-life threatening injuries.
The plane’s only passenger, Tache L. Alejandro of Orlando, Fla., suffered only minor injuries and was treated at the scene.
The plane in Virginia was one of two small aircraft that crashed into dwellings overnight. The other crashed in Eatonville, WA, and, as in Virginia, only injuries were reported.
According to public information officer Corinne Geller, Larson and Alejandro work for an aerial photography company and had been in the air taking infra-red photographs when the plane experienced electrical problems and the engine cut off.
Because the plane was also running low on fuel, Larson had contacted Dulles Airport to re-route its destination. Originally the plane was to land at the Manassas Regional Airport. The plane had departed from Northeast Philadelphia Airport.
The NTSB and FAA have been notified and are on scene investigating the incident.
The plane crashed into the Dulles Green apartments at 2232 Astoria Circle in Herndon, with the nose landing in the living room of one of the third-story units.
Geller said there were four adults and two children asleep in the apartment at the time of the crash.
One of the adults, a 33-year-old female, was transported to Inova Fairfax Hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
No one else in the apartment was injured, nor any others in the apartment building. However, there was significant exterior damage to the apartment building, so State Police evacuated all occupants, Geller said. The Red Cross is assisting those residents.
