Virgina plane crash: Couple and dog die before reaching airport

Virgina plane crash: Couple and dog die before reaching airport, A Virginia plane crash happened not far from Williamsburg-Jamestown Airport Friday at 4:53 p.m., Inquisitr reports April 20. The pilot, Joseph D. Brown, and his wife, Susan S. Brown, were killed along with their dog while flying in the Cessna 210 aircraft.

The two passengers and the dog were the only ones in the single-engine plane.

An investigation by the FAA confirms so far that no injuries or damage to property was done.

Witness and retired fire captain, Herbert Gordon, reported seeing the plane fly in an unstable manner just before it crashed.

“I heard him pulling for power, trying to power up,” Gordon said. “The plane banked like it was coming into the airport, and it looked like the wind pushed it up. It’s wings were perpendicular to the ground.

“All of a sudden, he just did a nose-dive. Then I heard a crash.”

The Virginia plane crash was in no way due to a lack of experience on behalf of the pilot. Brown had clocked more than 4,300 flight hours with the U.S. Air Force and had served combat time with Enduring and Iraqi Freedom.

Brown's officer title was Major General of the Eisenhower School at Fort McNair, which is a presitgious Department of Defense national security training school located in Washington, D.C..
