Cessna C340 aircraft crashes near Palm Beach County Park Airport, 2 Dead.
A Cessna C340 aircraft crashed and burned approximately one mile northeast of the Palm Beach County Park Airport in West Palm Beach, FL, about 10:40 A.M. The plane departed from Key West.
The twin-engine Cessna 335 crashed into a grassy area of John Prince Park about 10:40 a.m. Sunday, a couple hundred feet at most from the busy two eastbound lanes of Sixth Avenue South and just south of Palm Beach State College.
The plane tore down branches but crashed without injuring anyone in the park.
Two people inside died, authorities said. Their names were not released Sunday.
The plane is registered to Nova Aviation LLC., according to records connected to the aircraft’s N-Number, which was released by the National Transportation Safety Board.
The NTSB and the Federal Aviation Administration — which said the plane came from Key West — will work to determine the cause of the crash that happened about one mile northeast of the Palm Beach County Park Airport in Lantana.
