One person was killed Sunday in a single-engine plane crash at the Tailwinds Airport just north of the Martin County line and west of Florida’s Turnpike, according to the Martin County Sheriff’s Office.
The Federal Aviation Administration said there were possibly two people on board when the Luscombe 8A went down under “unknown circumstances.”
The crash happened at about 12:30 p.m. Sunday.
Palm Beach County Fire Rescue first responders went to the scene and found a plane in the brush area off the end of the runway at the small airport located at 2400 S.E. Downwinds Road. A fire rescue spokesperson said one person was taken to the hospital.
The Tailwinds community has a Jupiter mailing address and ZIP code.
The FAA will release the tail number of the airplane after investigators verify it at the accident site. Both the FAA and National Transportation Safety Board will investigate and provide updates.
A press statement notes that neither agency identifies people involved in airplane accidents.
