TFR Issued For Crash Site Investigation
ANN REALTIME REPORTING 01.19.07 1430 EST: The
recovery of an Air Force T-38C trainer that crashed in northern
Mississippi Thursday has prompted the FAA to issue a Temporary
Flight Restriction in the area.
Memphis, TN television station WHBQ reports the aircraft (file
photo of type, above) was based at Columbus Air Force Base, and was
flying a "low level navigation training exercise" when it crashed
at about 1:30 pm Thursday. Both crewmembers onboard ejected
NOTAM 71336 is in effect from
now until January 26, to allow Air Force crews to recover the
wreckage and conduct an investigation into the accident.
Media reports indicate two hunters in the area at the time of
the crash aided in recovery of the two pilots.
"They noticed two (pilots) that parachuted out of the airplane,"
said Chief Deputy Otis Griffin of the Panola County Sheriff's
Department. "One landed in trees and one landed in water. The duck
hunters got on their four wheelers and rescued the two pilots."
"They both were uninjured," Griffin added. "One was just wet and
one was hanging in the trees by the parachute."
