Nine people are dead after a small plane carrying skydivers crashed into an island Sweden.

Witnesses watched in horror as the aircraft plummeted into the island outside the northern city of Umea, on Sweden's eastern coastline, killing all aboard.

One witness said he heard the strange sound and watched as the plane plummeted, nose-first toward the River Ume, then crashed out of sight with a loud 'bang'.

Axel Pettersson, 16, told Aftonbladet he was sitting on the couch at his home near Umea Airport eating when heard a sound from the skies becoming higher, and higher-pitched.
