A business jet crashed into a building in Connecticut on Thursday morning after developing a problem shortly after takeoff — killing all four people on board, officials said.

The Cessna Citation 560X took off from Robertson Field Airport in Plainville en route to Dare County Regional Airport in Manteo, North Carolina, about 10 a.m. when it crashed into a building on Hyde Road in Farmington, FAA spokesperson Nia Fields told The Post.

The two pilots and two passengers were killed, officials confirmed later Thursday.

The identities of those killed have not been revealed.

The plane developed trouble after takeoff, crashed into the ground and then struck the building, police told reporters at the scene.

The address of the crash corresponds to that of Trumpf Medical Systems, a German industrial machine manufacturing company.

The company said that of the roughly 100 workers inside the building, two were slightly injured, local reports said.
