ORLANDO, Fla. —
One person is dead and another was sent to the hospital after a plane at the Orlando Executive Airport flipped over during severe weather Thursday, according to the Orlando Fire Department.
The Federal Aviation Administration confirmed two people were inside the plane when it flipped over at about 5 p.m. The plane was holding for takeoff on a taxiway while the weather was unfavorable, according to a spokesperson for the airport.
The spokesperson said another plane that flipped over did not have anyone inside it.
“Unfortunately, that system moved in so fast, it was so severe with very heavy gusty winds that it actually flipped the airplane,” said Orlando Executive Airport director and air traffic controller, Judith-Ann Jarrette.
