CRISCUOLO. *NIN*) WE START WITH DEVELOPING NEWS OUT OF HOWARD COUNTY. AUTHORITIES SAY A MAN IS DEAD AFTER A PLANE CRASHED ON A SOYBEAN FIELD. . NEWS 8’S TRAVIS ROBINSON WENT TO THE SCENE AND TALKED TO THE PERSON WHO OWNS THE LAND WHERE THE CRASH HAPPENED. TRAVIS? *TRAVI*) *TRAVI*) I DID, AND THEY DIDN’T WANT TO GO ON CAMERA BUT THEY SAID THEY DIDN’T KNOW THE MAN OR THE PLANE, THEY JUST KNEW THE POLICE WERE TELLING THEM NOT TO GO INTO THE FIELD. POLICE AREN’T GIVING OUT THE IDENTITY OF THE PILOT, WHO WAS THE ONLY PERSON INSIDE THE TWIN- ENGINE PLANE AT THE TIME OF THE CRASH. THEY’RE ALSO NOT SAYING WHAT LED UP TO THE CRASH, BUT I SPOKE TO ONE NEIGHBOR TO THE FIELD WHO SAW THE PLANE FALL OUT OF THE SKY…I’LL LET HER EXPLAIN WHAT SHE SAW. ((“AS IT GOT BEHIND THE HOUSE, HERE, IT WENT DOWN- ONE WING WENT DOWN LOW TO THE GROUND. AND THEN THE WING HIT THE GROUND AND THE PLANE WENT RIGHT ON INTO THE FIELD. AND I SAW THE WING START DIPPING DOWN AND I KNEW HE WASN’T GOING TO BE ABLE TO RIGHT THE PLANE. I’M YELLING AT THE AIRCRAFT, ACTUALLY. I’M SAYING ‘GET UP IN THE AIR!’ AND THEN WHEN IT HIT I KEPT SAYING ‘NO, NO, NO, NO! YOU CAN’T DO THAT!’ SOMEBODY LOST THEIR LIFE…AND I DON’T LIKE SEEING THINGS LIKE THAT. PEOPLE SHOULDN’T HAVE TO DIE LIKE THAT. THAT HAD TO HAVE BEEN UGLY AND VERY FRIGHTENING FOR HIM.”)) *TRAVI*) THE NEIGHBOR ALSO TOLD ME THAT THEY SEE PLENTY OF SMALLER PLANES AROUND THERE BECAUSE OF THE AIRFIELD A FEW MILES AWAY. *TRAVI*) THE FEDERAL AVIATION ADMINISTARTION AND THE NATIONAL TRANSPORTAION SAFETY BOARD ARE INVESTIGATING THE CRASH.
