A sheriff says all three folks aboard a twin-engine jet had been killed when it crashed in some woods in northern Mississippi.
Union County Sheriff Jimmy Edwards tells files outlets that those killed had been pilot Tommy Nix and wife Merline Nix of Belmont, Mississippi, and co-pilot Jarrod Holloway of Booneville, Mississippi.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Rick Breitenfeldt tells The Related Press that the Rockwell Sabreliner sixty 5 airplane crashed about 10:30 p.m. Saturday between New Albany and Blue Springs.
The jet used to make certain for Alabama’s Marion County-Rankin Fite Airport from College Oxford Airport in Mississippi.
Extreme storms had been sweeping by Mississippi on the time, but Breitenfeldt says it used to be not straight away sure if weather used to be a part within the smash.
He says the FAA and the National Transportation Security board will compare.
