A Lancair LNC 4 aircraft crash-landed onto a levee in the Everglades, near Broward-Palm Beach county line, Florida, on August 30.
The four-seater aircraft, which took off from Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport and was heading to Lynchburg, Virginia, crash-landed due to engine failure. Authorities said the aircraft cartwheeled and burst into flames upon landing.
There were 2 people aboard the plane, including the 52-year-old pilot Ken McKenzie and his 50-year-old wife Sonia. Both of them sustained non-life-threatening injuries.
Authorities said the pilot had reported low oil pressure shortly after the plane departed from Fort Lauderdale airport.
