Fiery Plane Crash In Florida Parking Lot

A Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport spokesman says the plane began experiencing problems shortly after takeoff and was trying to return when it hit a warehouse at 53rd Street and North Powerline Road.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — A small plane crashed into a parking lot near a South Florida airport, killing all three people onboard and burning about a dozen cars.

Fort Lauderdale fire officials said no one on the ground was hurt in the Friday afternoon crash near that city’s executive airport. The plane was a Piper Navajo, which is a two-engine turboprop.

Video from WSVN-TV shows the smoke-filled scene of apparent plane crash in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
