Detailed report about 2013 McClellanville fatal plane crash released

  • Wednesday, March 19, 2014

NTSB/provided The wreckage of an airplane crash in McClellanville that killed two people on board on June 20.

What sounded like a scream was heard over the radio. Within five minutes, air traffic controllers had lost all contact with a pilot and a flight instructor aboard the turboprop plane that had been 15,000 feet above McClellanville. Minutes later, someone reported seeing a plane plummeting into the woods of the Francis Marion National Forest. In the 10 minutes the plane spent in the air, something had gone terribly wrong. When investigators found the wreckage, twisted metal and tree branches spanned 290 feet in a swamp, along with the bodies of the two men on board. These final moments and other details about the fatal plane crash in June were released this month in a report by the National Transportation Safety Board, the agency investigating the crash.
