Plane Departs from Gainesville, Crashes in Everglades
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - Rescue crews are returning to the
Florida Everglades to comb the site of a small plane crash that
killed as many as four people on board.
A Broward County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman says the
single-engine plane went down about 6 p.m. Sunday west of Fort
Lauderdale. Rescue teams using airboats to search the marshy waters
found no survivors Sunday.
Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Arlene Salac says
the plane left Gainesville and was headed to an executive airport
in Fort Lauderdale. She says the pilot radioed that he was having
problems with the Piper PA-32.
The plane is registered to Bull Gator Air Inc., in Sea Ranch
Lakes. Nobody answered a call to the company early Monday.
