This is the 14th fairway at Indian Springs, we live on 16. Based on where the plane is located and where he was headed (Bowman Field), he missed our house by about 15 houses.
The pilot was the only person on board and was killed. He was young (25) and flying in from Chicago, Midway. There is no obvious cause for the crash, but he transmitted a distress signal and disappeared from radar around 5:00am.
The 5 buzzing news helicopters woke my Mom up, who called to see if we had heard anything.
