New Information Involving Small Plane Crash Near Boynton Beach

THERE IS AN UPDATE TO THIS STORY. CLICK HERE.

BOYNTON BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — BocaNewsNow.com reported earlier that the plane that crashed in the Everglades Sunday evening was registered to Mann Aviation LLC, a company with several small planes based in Geneva, Florida. We have now learned, in part by reporting from our friends at the Palm Beach Post, that the plane was operated by “Air Orlando,” a flight school that is based at Orlando Executive Airport (KORL). The pilot, according to a flight school interview with the Post, was highly experienced.

It is believed that there are two bodies still inside the plane — the pilot and a passenger. It is so difficult to access the scene, which is in the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge, that it may take quite some time for the recovery operation to conclude. According to Fish and Wildlife in an interview with the Post, there is “about a foot of water on top of the mud, which can be 12-17 feet.”
