C414 Down Near Atlanta, Three Lost

Officials Report Fog In Area

Firefighters report at least three people were killed after a Cessna 414 Chancellor crashed on approach to Briscoe Field, outside Atlanta, GA Monday night.

Lt. Craig Stanley, spokesman for the Gwinnett County Fire Department, said the twin-engine aircraft (file photo of type, below right) impacted a dirt parking lot about 75 yards from the runway just after 8:40 pm. He says crews are still searching for other possible victims.

“There was a fire, obviously a lot of wreckage, a lot of debris in the area,” Stanley told the Gwinnett Daily Post.

Officials report fog in the area at the time of the crash, and the plane went down on its second approach to land at the suburban airport. The plane's pilot was in contact with the tower at Gwinnett County, Stanley said, but there was no distress call from the aircraft.

The controller on duty at Briscoe Field called 911 after seeing an orange glow near the plane's last reported position.

Officials say the plane's flight plan indicates it was inbound to Gwinnett County from Pembroke Pines, FL.

The victims have not been identified. Investigators with the National Transportation Safety Board are due to arrive onscene Tuesday.
