Former Microsoft Executive Presumed Dead in Connecticut Plane Crash

Posted: Updated: A former Microsoft executive and his teenage son are presumed dead after their small plane crashed into a residential neighborhood a few blocks from a Connecticut airport while trying to land.

A family member identified two of the dead as former Microsoft executive Bill Henningsgaard and his teenage son, Maxwell, who were in the plane.

The multi-engine, propeller-driven plane struck two small homes a few blocks from Tweed New Haven Airport as it came in to land Friday.

Anthony Moscato of the East Haven Fire Department said Saturday that the bodies of two people from the plane and two people in one of the homes were recovered overnight.

The deputy chief said authorities now believe those were the only victims.
