The Cessna had been taking off from the airport shortly before 1:30 p.m., airport director Arif Ghouse said. It wound up near Commando Road, where it struck a tree.

I got my private pilot's license in that plane. It was my favorite of their 152s. N714TD. R.I.P I'm so happy to hear that they were both uninjured.

That plane is seriously busted up. Only be the grace of God did those two escape uninjured.
