(MIRAMAR, FL)– Officials have identified the two people killed Monday morning when their small plane crashed into a Miramar house shortly after takeoff from nearby North Perry Airport.
The victims are Anthony Rolland Yen, age 34 and Jordan Travis Hall, age 32, both of Florida.
At 11:40 AM Monday multiple 911 calls summoned Miramar police to a home at 2241 Jamaica Drive where a small Adventura II airplane was found wedged nose-first between the house and a fence.
The plane had just departed from North Perry Airport, only 7 blocks north of the house, on an apparent test flight just before it crashed.
There was no fire associated with the crash but it took rescuers hours to stabilize the airplane and extract the victims from inside.
The plane also took out several powerlines and FPL had to turn off electricity to the area while rescuers worked to secure the scene.
It is not clear whether Yen or Hall was at the controls at the time of the incident and the National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the cause of the crash.
No one one the ground was hurt, however the residents have not been permitted to returned to their home.
This is the 6th crash near North Perry Airport in the last two years.
