Hot Springs, AR Private Plane Crash, Jul 1995


Hot Springs, Ark. (AP) - A private plane clipped the tops of pine trees and crashed nose-down early today, killing all four people aboard police said.
The single-engine plane crashed and burned about 100 yards from a house near the city airport.
"I was in my den and able to look out my patio window, and flames were just shooting up over the trees," said Susie White, who called 911 to report hearing an explosion about 12:50 a.m.
The plane was totally in flames by the time firefighters arrived minutes later, she said.
The four-seat plane was burned beyond recognition, police officer Tim Hoover said. Police did not release the victims' names.
