FREDERICKSBURG, Va.-- Police say a father and his son died in a single-engine plane in Virginia's Spotsylvania County on Saturday.
 
Virginia State Police say the Cessna 150M had just taken off from Shannon Airport on Saturday evening when it plummeted to the ground, striking a tree. The plane fell in a mobile home park but no homes were hit and no one on the ground was hurt.
 
Virginia State Police spokeswoman Corinne Geller said in a release that 48-year-old John B. Morton Jr. and his 13-year-old son Kyle J. Morton, of Stafford, died. She said the father was conducting takeoffs and landings at the airport, which only serves small plans and no commercial flights.
 
Police said federal authorities are investigating at the site about 75 miles southwest of Washington.
