Returning to their Versailles, Indiana, home after a flight from Chicago, two people died when their 1968 Cessna 177 Cardinal crashed in a wooded field on Saturday at 8:41 p.m. about nine miles northwest of Madison Municipal Airport in Madison, Indiana, according to Examiner.com.
A husband and wife, both 55-years-old, died in the crash. They owned a soybean farm in Jennings County, and she was a former high school teacher.
The aircraft was apparently ablaze before it crashed, according to a resident about a mile from the site of impact, who told a reporter, "I looked up in the sky and saw a big ball of fire. I just saw it fall straight down and explode as it hit the ground. I didn't know what it was. I had no idea. I just saw a big orange circle in the sky and saw it fall."
Indiana State Police were notified of the crash at 8:45 p.m. on Saturday and secured the area, which showed multiple parts of the plane scattered in small pieces over a wide debris path.
A team from the Federal Aviation Administration arrived by 1:00 a.m. Both the FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating this fatal incident.
