Maharashtra, April 26: Two persons were killed when a trainer aircraft of a private aviation academy crashed into a river on Maharashtra's border with Madhya Pradesh on Wednesday, the police said.
Pilot Ranjan Gunta and student pilot Himani died when the National Flying Training Institute aircraft crashed around 9.30 am into the Vainganga river, the police said.

took off from Gondia.
