Two people were on board a plane that crashed Wednesday morning in Buncombe County, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

National Transportation and Safety Board officials were expected to arrive at the crash scene Wednesday evening.

Officials are calling it a fatal crash investigation, but would not release information on who was killed.

The Rans S-6 Coyote II light sport aircraft crashed about 10:45 a.m. in a cornfield 1 mile northeast of Six Oaks Airport in Asheville, Kathleen Bergen, manager of FAA communications said.

NTSB officials told WYFF News 4 that investigators are asking witnesses to the crash to come forward and tell them what they saw.

Sky 4 flew over the area and found the wreckage of a plane.

Bergen told media outlets to reach out to local authorities for names and medical conditions.

Local authorities have not provided any details of the crash.

NTSB officials said once the investigation at the scene is finished, the aircraft will be moved to a secure location where investigators will continue their probe.

Officials said it will take a week to 10 days for their initial report to be released.
