(JACKSON, Miss.) The FAA says the pilot of a plane that crashed in Jackson, Miss., wanted to take his plane out for a short flight before flying it to Gulf Shores for the Thanksgiving holidays.
The National Transportation Safety Board investigators headed to Jackson Wednesday to inspect the wreckage. The plane crashed into a house in Jackson, killing three people aboard the plane and igniting a huge fire.
The three victims have not been identified, but the plane's owner identified one of them as flight instructor John Edward Tilton Jr. The owner says he's owned the plane for two and a half years and described it as being in mint condition.
A woman inside the house that was hit, was treated at the hospital for burns.
