EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. – Authorities say four people were killed when a small civilian plane crashed on a U. S. Air Force base in Florida.
Military officials told news outlets that the Beechcraft B60 airplane crashed Thursday morning in a remote area of Eglin Air Force Base in the Florida Panhandle.
Base spokeswoman Jasmine Porterfield said the crash in a densely wooded area, a few kilometers from the base of the track.
The Federal Aviation Administration says the plane crashed while approaching Destin Executive Airport, located in a bay of the base. Flight records say the plane departed from the Toledo Express Airport in Ohio.
The officials have not yet identified the victims. The plane is registered to Henry leasing in Ottawa Lake, Michigan.
