BEIJING (AP) — An American pilot and a Chinese passenger have been killed in a light airplane crash in eastern China, state media reported.

The official Xinhua news agency said Sunday night that neither of the deceased had been identified yet in the accident in Anhui province in eastern China.

Xinhua reported that the plane crashed within minutes of taking off Sunday afternoon and caught fire. It said the plane belonged to the George Heintz Aircraft Manufacturing Co., a U.S. company operating in neighboring Henan province.
