Plane Crash in Gainesville Georgia

 

Plane Crash in Gainesville GeorgiaA small plane has crashed in Gainesville, Georgia. The accident happened just before noon, local time. A report from the ground said that one person died on impact and one is critically injured.

No one on the ground received injuries. The aircraft apparently hit power lines and slammed to the ground near the runway.

Private pilot accidents are up 20 percent since 2000, while commercial airlines have dropped by 85 percent.

The rise in the number of accidents by private aircraft is generally blamed on pilot error; lack of sufficient training time and inattention to detail.

    My thoughts…?

    You ran out of information about the story and decided to pack it with irrelevant filler…

    No wonder journalists are considered sources of entertainment instead of news…
