The plane went down directly in front of the school and burst into flames.

Three people that were on the aircraft were injured. They were identified as a teacher at Blue Angels Elementary School, her husband and a juvenile, but their names have not been released.

    What are the chances of being involved in a plane crash at the place you work? Very odd at the least.

    Channel 3 only repeats news for three days & nothing up-to-date but what the liberals wants. But, NorthEscambia News is the best!
    Prayer for fast recovery for all involved.
