It turns out that the plane hit a 115 KV line feeding the plant on the other side of the highway.
Witnesses said they saw the plane pull up to avoid the Milliken plant building.
McDuffie County Fire Rescue Chief Bruce Tanner said the plane clipped electric transmission lines that run behind Milliken.
