Aug. 13, Panacea, Fla. / Beech B-58 Baron


At about 17:30 EDT, a Beech Baron crashed while landing at Wakulla County Airport. The pilot was killed and a passenger suffered minor injuries. A pilot who landed on runway 18 at Wakulla County about 20 minutes before the accident said he could see a thunderstorm fast approaching the field from the west. Light rain began sprinkling the airport just before the accident, and the wind shifted from the south to the north. The accident aircraft landed downwind on runway 18, touched down about half-way down the runway, and skidded off the end, through a chain-link fence and into a thicket of oak trees.
