Officials say the plane crashed during an instructional training course and caught fire.

“It’s very rare that we have incidents at this airport,” said Naitore Djigbenou, of the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet. “We have around 50 landings and takeoffs a day. The airport will continue to operate.”

There were two passengers on the plane at the time. They both sustained minor injuries, but declined medical treatment.

The Federal Aviation Administration is currently investigating and will release details at a later time.
