Air Force Academy trainer plane crash investigated

AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) -- The Air Force is investigating after a training plane crashed into a hangar at the Air Force Academy while landing.

Neither of the two people aboard was injured when the T-53 Kadet 2 crashed on Monday.

Their names haven't been released. Air Force spokeswoman Bekah Clark says one person was a cadet but she didn't know whether the other person was a cadet or an instructor.

Clark didn't know whether training flights had been canceled while the crash is investigated or how badly the plane and the hangar were damaged.

The single-engine, low-wing T-53 is the Air Force version of the Cirrus SR20.

The academy acquired 25 of the aircraft last year for about $244,000 each.
