A 1992 Beechcraft Bonanza airplane crash landed at Ocala International Airport. The pilot claims the plane lost power, and the the landing gear of the plane collapsed on touchdown.
The pilot was flying the Beechcraft plane from Bradenton Florida to West Virginia (WV) when he made the emergency landing, according to myfoxorlando.com.
The pilot escaped this plane accident unharmed. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Our firm wrote about a plane crash that occurred in Yorktown, Virginia (VA) a few weeks ago which took the life of a brother and sister. In far too many plane accidents, death or serious injury is the result.
As a licensed pilot, I understand the risks pilots take and how serious the damage can be if a malfunction occurs. If you or a loved one was hurt in an airplane crash caused by a mechanical defect, consider speaking to an airplane accident lawyer to discuss your legal options.
