Dec. 13, Fort Lauderdale, Fla. / Piper Turbo Lance


At about 15:06 EST, a Piper PA-32RT-300T crashed on takeoff from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. The pilot and two passengers sustained minor injuries. The pilot said the engine stopped producing power right after takeoff from runway 27L. He was trying to avoid the heavily traveled I-95 at the edge of the airport and tried to turn enough to land on the airport property. The airplane collided with trees and came to rest in a canal at a boat marina, barely missing moored boats.
