Pilot Killed in Small Central Florida Airplane Crash
Zellwood, Florida. A small airplane en route to Dunnellon, Florida crashed near the Orlando North Airpoark in Zellwood, Florida. Zellwood is approximately 20 miles northwest of Orlando. The small plane crashed and burst into flames. The plane crashed into a field near the end of the runway just after takeoff. The pilot died in the crash and was the only person aboard. The plane is registered to Dunnelloon based Indigenous People's Technology and Education Center, a missionary organization.
Oftentimes, small airplane crashes are due to the failure of a particular component. Normally, there is a statute of limitations (12 years in Florida) on bringing product liability claims. Today, many airframes are much older than 12 years but that does not necessarily mean that the statute of limitations has run on your case as a component or part in the plane may have been replaced or is aftermarket and, hence, newer than 12 years old.
