At least seven individuals were annihilated after a world War II-era vintage bomber smashed at Bradley International Airport in Connecticut on Wednesday, officials announced.

The occurrence happened at around 10 am (local time) when the Boeing B-17 carrying 13 passengers, slid off the runway while attempting to land at Bradley International airport, Federal Aviation Administration declared, as quoted by Sputnik news agency.

Seven people, including a person on the territory, were harmed in the occurrence.

Footage posted on social media explicates a large plume of haze rising into the environment at the crash position.

The B-17 was one of the numerous mass-produced bomber aircraft in history, with over 12,700 assemblages built in the years before and through World War II.
