The pilot of a sky-typing plane was killed after crashing into a wooded area in Huntington, Long Island on Wednesday, according to multiple reports.

The single-engine, two-seat plane went down in Melville, a small hamlet within Huntington, at about 2 p.m., officials said. The Post reports that the plane was branded "U.S.S. Intrepid," and was flying in formation alongside other sky-typing and air show planes shortly before the crash.

A source told NBC News that the plane is a WWII-era trainer craft known as a T6 Texan. It is believed to be a sky-typing plane that was supposed to be part of the Jones Beach Air Show, which was cancelled over the weekend due to weather.

Photos taken by a witness show emergency crews working to extinguish the burning plane.

The cause of the crash was not immediately clear, but officials did note that "no structures were involved." The pilot's identity has not yet been released.
