The single-engine GlaStar crashed north of Kidwell Airport around 5 a.m., according to Eva Lee Ngai, an Federal Aviation Administration spokesperson. The two people killed were the only ones on board.
There were no reports of injuries on the ground.
The National Transportation Safety Board will oversee the investigation.
