Two people died when a small plane crashed in Coweta County near Senoia on Saturday afternoon, Channel 2 Action News reported from officials.

The plane crashed on Ga. 16 westbound at Tinsley Way, Channel 2 said.

The Federal Aviation Administration, which is investigating the crash, said the plane was a Mustang Two, a low-wing, two-seat acrobatic plane.

Coweta County Sheriff Lenn Wood told Channel 2's Tony Thomas the pilot had just landed, picked up a passenger and then taken back off from Big T’s airport, a private, grass-lined runway about a quarter-mile from the crash site.

"It was a plane that had just been purchased in Florida and flown up here," Wood told Thomas.
