In the skies over Charter Oak Avenue in East Haven, a plane made a typical approach to land at Tweed-New Haven Airport Saturday morning, less than 24 hours after another hit two houses.
The crash killed both people aboard, along with two children inside one of the homes.
"I heard the airplane making noise coming in, and I said what the hell is going on," said neighbor Edward Tracey.
Neighbors say they're used to aircraft vectoring in, almost low enough to touch.
"My mother lives in Florida, and she flies in and out of Tweed all the time, and one of the times she was flying in, I had the kids sitting outside so she could wave to them," said Yvonne Montagna.
Tweed nearly lost air traffic control recently to the national budget sequestration cuts.
" I mean, you see what happens, and that was with somebody in the control tower," Montagna said. "Not that it would have prevented it from happening, but I'm sure it could play a big part in the future.
Neighbors say that although it's been quite some time since the last accident of this magnitude for Tweed, they felt that it was only a matter of time, and which house's number would be up.
"You're scared for yourself, and you're also concerned about the people in the planes," said one neighbor. "You know, it's heartbreaking. It really is."
"Every time I hear a plane go over, I'm going to panic," said Emma Silva, who lives just two doors away from where the crash happened.
All of the folks we met said they'd never consider moving, but some would like to lose their noise-nuisance neighbor, one that once again has proven fatally dangerous.
"It's just not in a great area. There's just too many houses around," one neighbor said.
"They should do away with that airport," said Edward Tracey. "There's too many accidents. They don't know what the hell they're doing."
