A tragic plane crash in Alabama has cost the lives of two people on board when a training navy jet hit a home on Friday evening.
According to the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office, the dead are the two crew members of the plane and no civilians were harmed after the involved residence caught flames.
The plane, a US Naval aircraft, was identified as a T-6B Texan II aircraft. It crashed at around 5 p.m. near Magnolia School, Magnolia Springs.
In addition to the home, many vehicles were damaged, Foley Fire Chief Joey Darby said. Witnesses shared horrific footage from the scene depicting ravaging flames and thick smokes.
