Three People Killed in Florida Plane Crash

. By
Tampa Bay, FLThree people were killed in a small airplane crash in central Florida, according to Reuters.

The three victims of the twin-engine Cessna 337 crash were civilians but were reportedly participating in a military training exercise near the Avon Park bombing range, officials at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa said in a statement.

"The small, fixed-wing aircraft was providing support to a Special Operations Command training exercise. There was no armament on the aircraft or military personnel," the statement said.

The headquarters of the Special Operations Command is located at MacDill AFB on the Gulf Coast and is located approximately 90 miles west of Avon Park, the news source said.

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is currently investigating the crash. An investigator told the Associated Press that the airplane most likely nose-dived into the ground, but cautioned that it could take as long as a year to determine the cause of the crash.

The victims have not yet been identified, according to the news provider.

When it is a Cessna involved in a crash I would look for undetectable water in the fuel tanks the pilot cannot positively detect during the preflight of the aircraft.

The problem is with all Cessna 100 series, 200 series and 300 series aircraft. The problem is that the fuel tanks do not offer positive detection or elimination of water in the fuel. It does not matter how often the aircraft flies. What if the aircraft was sabotaged the night before? The water in the fuel tank stays hidden from the pilot during the preflight the next morning. What if it rained all night and the caps were left off? Point is the Cessna fuel tanks have an indicated design flaw. Why do you think the FAA just came out with SAIB CE-10-40R1? Why do you think Cessna closed their single engine production line in 1986? Why did the NTSB just happen to close their Safety Recommendation A-83-6 also in 1986. My aircraft from the factory came with two sump drains. The new production Cessna's from the re-start of manufacturing in 1996 after the passage of GARA have THIRTEEN SUMP DRAINS. Do you have a clue yet? There is no fix for my plane with the integral fuel tank that I am aware of. Do your own test on any Cessna parked anywhere in its normal ground attitude. Pour in some red dyed water, try 16 ounces, then go to the sump drain and see if you can positively detect it and then eliminate the same 16 ounces of red dyed water you just poured into the fuel tank. Good Luck. Do the test then come back and tell me what you know instead of what you think.
