A two-seater plane crashed at East Hampton Airport at roughly 5:30 p.m. this  evening with two occupants being airlifted to a local hospital with burns,  sources told The Post.

The small plane burst into flames after ending up in the woods near the  small, but busy, facility as local emergency crews rushed to the scene to douse  the flames and to transport the injured.

The unidentified victims were departing from the airport at the time of the  crash, sources said.

The facility has been temporarily closed during the busy Sunday evening rush  of planes and helicopters departing the East End.
