Saratoga Explosion Crashes In Field

Mon Nov 15, 2004 1:26 pm


A Sartago 280 Flying from Chicago to New Orleans has crash this afternoon
Just south of Memphis in the Tunica Casino area, The same place Where Fedex aircraft landed on a highway several months ago. The three passengers
were killed. Eyewitness claims he heard a boom and the tail of the aircraft landed not far from his home. The remaining part of the aircraft crash farther down the road. So it sounds like somehow the tail separated from the A/C.. The Fbi has been called to investigate this one with the saftey board..They cannot rule out and explosion... I may ride over there tommorow it is in the middle of some cotton field about a mile from the casinos...

Ironically when the Fedex caravan made a remarkable landing on highway 61 a few months back..the crew were out in the street trying to push it off the highway, when out of the blue a semi truck crashed through the wing sending the palne spinning.

What happened to the FexEx crew when the semi hit the plane?
