DANBURY - A pilot is dead after his plane crashed near a Danbury home last night.

Officials say it happened at around 8:30 p.m., just as the plane was about to land at Danbury Airport.

Police say the pilot was identified as 64-year-old Peter Woodsmall, of Kansas.

Officials say Woodsmall's plane brushed up against a 91-year-old woman's home.

This is the second crash this month at the airport, but officials say they don't believe that airport safety is an issue.
