JUSTIN, Texas -- Authorities say two people died when a small single-engine plane crashed as it prepared to land at a southwest Denton County airport Saturday.

The Texas Department of Public Safety says the two-seater was flying along with two other aircraft and was making the final turn on approach when it crashed.

The plane went down nose first less than a quarter-mile from the airport's north end and was engulfed in flames.

A witness said he talked to the pilot, who had years of flying experience, shortly before take off around noon.

The crash happened at about 1:30 p.m.

Officials with the Federal Aviation Administration are investigating.
