Flight Instructor Suffers Critical Injuries in Tragic Miramar Plane Crash
Miramar, FL- Local10.com writes that a plane crash left a flight instructor from the Wayman Aviation Academy with critical injuries. The injuries include burns, and the victim was transferred to the Jackson Memorial Hospital for treatment.*
The student pilot, identified as a 25-year-old man, was killed at the scene of the crash. Reports indicate that the plane came down on Pembroke Road near Hiatus Road. The debris from the aircraft was transferred to a local hanger where it will remain until the National Transportation Safety Board is able to investigate the crash and determine the cause of the tragic incident. The investigation could be delayed as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.
The flight school stated that the two men who were in the plane were passionate about flying. The flight was part of a training exercise in the Piper PA-34. A dashcam video caught the plane as it came towards the earth, striking a power line just moments before it hit the ground and caught fire. One witness stated that he watched as the plane crashed, and could feel the heat from the fire as the aircraft began to burn. The images from the scene show the small plane up against a tree covered with massive flames and billows of black smoke drifting up from the crash scene.
The plane had left from the North Perry Airport in the morning, and the men had informed the airport that they were returning when the crash took place. A spokesperson for the aviation school stated that the men were both experienced and that the student pilot had only months to go before he would have completed his training.
