Incident occurred October 23, 2022 in Lake Worth, Palm Beach County, Florida

PALM BEACH COUNTY, Florida — The pilot of a small plane was taken to a hospital after making a hard landing Sunday afternoon in John Prince Park near Lake Worth Beach, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.

The aircraft went down near Tim Granowitz Pavilion just after 4 p.m.

It appeared that the plane knocked down some tree branches and part of a fence before finally skidding on a road.

Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Teri Barbera said the pilot, who was the only person aboard the plane, is expected to survive.

There are no reports that anyone on the ground was injured.

It's unclear what caused the plane to go down.

The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the incident.

  2. I had scanned the Unicom for KLNA, he never even keyed the mic. so it happened quick.

  3. For anyone interested, the first post resulted from replaying the local ADS-B traffic, which is a feature available in Adsbexchange that works well for locations having good signal capture and when there is an accurate time hack from a news report.

    The URL format for replay is easy to edit and re-utilize, controls are simple, just remember to hit pause when the page opens so that the default speed of 30x can be reduced to something reasonable, like < 5X. Copying from the example below, you can use the "jump to airport" control to get to a new lat & lon location of interest after editing for new date and Z time.
