Multiple people are dead and 14 are injured after a vintage World War II-era plane crashed at a small CT airport and erupted in flames, reports say.
Fire and law enforcement officials could not immediately comment on the nature of the crash.
Officials said the injured included 13 people on the plane and one maintenance worker on the ground. At least six of these ended up at Hartford hospital, and three of these were in critical condition.
"We can confirm that there was an accident involving a Collings Foundation World War II aircraft this morning at Bradley Airport", airport officials tweeted.
Travelers filled the airport and the sidewalks outside the terminal following the crash and were advised by airport officials to reschedule their flights for Thursday.
A fire-and-rescue operation is now underway.

Connecticut Public Safety Commissioner James Rovella said hours after the crash that some of those on board were severely burned, and "the victims are very hard to identify".
According to news reports at the time, the same plane made an emergency landing in 1995. Eyewitnesses say the plane was flying very low as it circled back around the airport. It wasn't clear how many people were on board.
"Then we heard all the rumbling and the thunder, and all the smoke comes up and we kind of figured it wasn't good", Hamer said.
