News is just starting to flow in on a crash of a twin engine aircraft while on final to MLB... 3 Fatalities so far, as well as the fire starting a large brush fire... The plane was apparently en-route from JAX...

Happened just short of my office...maybe three or four blocks. I talked to one of the EMT's at lunch, and he said it was (obviously) a bad situation.

Air traffic seems to be back to normal. FIT planes are back doing touch and go's.

From what I heard the guy was coming in to fast turning finals and the tower told him to slow down, the guy apperently entered a crosscontrolled stall and spun.

This is just hearsay here at FIT so dont quote me on it.

RIP to the victims.
If it ain't Boeing (or Embraer ;-)) I ain't Going!

The CEP of JT Byrider was in the plane along with his son-in-law.
