2020 is proving to be very challenging as the days go on. On one side, there is the COVID pandemic and all other negative news is slowly killing the morale of people. Adding to the news of sadness is a recent plane crash in the US.
A US Navy training plane took off from Florida and suddenly crashed in the Alabama region. The incident happened on the southeast of Mobile, near the city of Foley, Magnolia Springs. When the plane crashed in the residential area of the Gulf coast, no one was harmed in the area while the same can’t be said about the ones inside the plane.
The two people in the T-6B Texan II training plane died as soon as the plane crashed and there is no scope for saving them. This was confirmed by the Spokesperson for Commander, Naval Air Forces, Zach Harrell. However, the authorities have not announced the names and identities of the ones inside the plane.
The area happens to be a widely populated region and it is a thankful surprise that no one was harmed because of the crash. There was very strong smoke, the vehicles and home were caught in the fire but no one was around from the neighborhood. Only the property was damaged and the fire-fighters were quick to reach the spot. None of the firefighters were harmed either.
There has to be a thorough investigation before they can speak with conviction about the cause of the crash. Everything was great when the plane took off from the Whiting Field Naval Air station about 48.28 kilometers northeast of Pensacola. It was a training plane, not too huge and that’s why the damage wasn’t too hazardous.
The Department of Defence and the Navy, US, is looking into the matter with keen interest and investigating the case from all aspects.
