Mourning brother in Uganda blast, N.C.  man hurt in plane crash

Jul 13, 2010 8:45:00 AM - thestate.com

Kyle Henn walked away from a plane crash at Horace Williams Airport that killed one man and left another in critical condition, but you can’t say he’s lucky.

Kyle Henn, 22, of Newark, Del., was apparently en route to Raleigh on Monday afternoon to join his family in mourning the death of his older brother, who was the only American among at least 64 people killed Sunday in terrorist bombings in Uganda.

Nathan Henn, 25, was an aid worker slain along with dozens of Ugandans in the country’s capital, Kampala, when bombs went off among crowds watching the soccer World Cup finals.

Then, hours later, the Henn family nearly lost Kyle when the single-engined Cirrus SR20 that he was riding in crashed Monday on its approach to the runway. The wreckage came rest under a tree and against a fence that borders the Carolina North Forest.
