Nov. 16, Santee, S.C. / Cessna 182P Skylane


About 12:33 EST, a Cessna 182P crashed into Lake Marion, killing the pilot. The pilot had been en route from Hilton Head, S.C. to Charleston, W.Va., but had not filed a flight plan. Witnesses said it was foggy and they could hear but not see the airplane and believed it was circling around the lake very low. One witness who was fishing in the area said the airplanes engine was screaming and then became quiet. A short time later he was moving his boat to a different fishing spot when he ran across debris floating in the lake and saw the tail of the airplane protruding out of the water.
