This is becoming all too common in the Bahamas -- private planes crashing and killing pilots and passengers. This is the latest. This plane, a Cessna 340 took off from Ormond Beach Municipal Airport near Daytona Beach, Florida headed for Freeport in the Bahamas. It crashed 5 miles from the airport into the shallow ocean. If you have ever flown from Freeport, as I have, you will notice that water sometimes comes right to the edge of the airport. However it is very very shallow for miles.
Update: Thanks to the reader who pointed out that it was four people including the pilot that were killed. The passengers were investors and corporate officers in the resort.
