Surveillance video from a Foley business captured incredible images of a plane crash near the city’s airport.
The crash happened south of the airport off Hickory Street Tuesday afternoon. A Cessna 421 Twin Engine clipped a few trees over business
Owner Aubrey Morris’ shop and slammed into a massive oak just a few feet from his front door.
The plane burst into flames on impact. Seconds later, the entire aircraft was on fire.
Incredibly, pilot Russell Smith managed to escape the burning aircraft with only a cut on his hand and a massive headache.
Smith says he’s been a pilot for 50 years and has never had an accident or incident.
The FAA is investigating.
