The teenage girl was sitting in her home, using snapchat with her friends when suddenly a bright flash came from outside.
Once she realised what had happened, she turned and screamed: “Oh my God.”
Witnesses say the plane, a Hawker H25 – clipped something on its final approach into Akron Fulton Airport before crashing into the building.
There were no survivors.
“There is nothing I can say,” said Augusto Lewkowicz, CEO of Execuflight, the company that owns the plane.
“We are looking into what happened. I will be up in Akron. I am at a loss for words. It was a perfectly maintained aircraft.”
