Jordan Hall 

PEMBROKE PINES, Florida – Family members of 32-year-old Jordan Hall mourned the student pilot killed when the plane he and his flight instructor piloted crashed into a Miramar neighborhood Monday.

They spoke to Local 10 News Wednesday.

They said Hall was just five hours away from getting his pilot’s license when the Aero Adventure Aventura II crashed just south of North Perry Airport, killing him and 34-year-old Antony Rolland Yen.

Airport personnel reported that the plane had been undergoing maintenance and had departed on a test flight shortly before it crashed Monday morning.

Investigators believe the plane, classified as an experimental aircraft, was leaking fuel before it went down.

Family members described Hall as an adventure-loving aviator “who loved to fly in life.”

“Life is certainly fragile. We are not promised more than the moment we are given,” Brian Hall, Jordan’s father, said. “He only got 32 years here. I’m thankful for the 32.”

Jordan’s mother recounted the moment she was told the news.

“It was the most horrific call I ever got,” Susan Hall Dotson said. “I was in shock.”

Tristen Hall, Jordan’s sister, described him as “a beautiful man,” whom everyone loved.

Hall’s family, bound together with so much love, is now finding a way to move forward.

“He wouldn’t want us to be sad,” Monika Mitchell, Hall’s sister, said.

But they remembered the son, brother and friend who was an “inspiration.”

“Some people say it was his time,” Hall Dotson said. “It wasn’t his time, but it was the time.”

The family has set up a GoFundMe account to help with expenses.

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the crash.

MIRAMAR, Florida -- Broward County officials on Tuesday identified the pilot and passenger who were killed when the small plane they were in crashed into a Miramar home, forcing people inside to flee for their lives.

The medical examiner's office identified the victims as Antony R. Yen, 34, and Jordan T. Hall, 32, from West Park. Both were killed at the scene when the single-engine Aventura II aircraft went down around 11:45 a.m. in the yard of a home located in the 2200 block of Jamaica Drive.

The crash scene is located about a half-mile south of North Perry Airport.

The Federal Aviation Administration said in a written statement Monday that two people were on board the craft when it went down. No one on the ground was killed or hurt during the incident.

A spokesperson for Miramar police said several people called 911 to report the downed plane. 

One of them was Manyerenis Moreno who was inside the home with her child when she heard a loud noise.

"An airplane just fell on top of my house," she told 911. A police radio dispatcher also said a "plane was hanging from a house."

"I heard a loud noise and the plane was on top of us," Moreno said Monday. "I thought it was a transformer and so I grabbed my baby. It was a big noise and it was on top of us. I was afraid something was going to come through the roof. I went outside and saw the plane on the roof!"

CBS4's Peter D'Oench caught up with her on Tuesday after a crane removed the plane from the home and it was partially disassembled and taken away. Moreno was able to look at the damage.

"There is a lot of damage everywhere," she said. "I am really sad that everything is damaged and 2 lives are lost inside my house. I saw everything on the floor and you can smell the fuel. It is still on the floor. It is very sad. One moment you lose almost everything. I am very sad but I am ok. We don't  know when we'll be able to go back in because there is no power and damage everywhere."

She said, "We also don't know where we are going to stay, my husband and I and my 2 sons who are 2 years old and 14 years old. We are poor. We stayed at a friend's house last night but tonight I don't know what we are going to do. It was really scary what happened to us."

"We were in the bedroom and I heard a big noise on top of my head and I grabbed my son and went out and much to my surprise saw a plane on top of my house.  I am super grateful that my 2-year-old son and I survived. I am just very emotional about what happened and thank God I am alive and ok."

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the crash.

An NTSB investigator began the process of documenting the scene and examining the aircraft. 

Part of their investigation will be to request radar data, weather information, maintenance records and the pilot's medical records. NTSB investigators will also look at the human, machine and environment as the outline of the investigation. 

"The preliminary report, which includes all the factual information learned to date, is expected to publish 15 days after the accident," the NTSB said. 

The NTSB also said that investigations involving fatalities, and other major investigations currently take between 12 and 24 months to complete.

MIRAMAR, Florida (WSVN) - Two people are dead after a plane crashed into a home in a Miramar neighborhood. Both people were on board the plane.

Fire rescue units responded to the scene on 2241 Jamaica Drive, around 11:45 a.m., Monday.

The Aero Adventure Aventura II crashed into the home just south of North Perry Airport and came into contact with power lines over the house, which became tangled around it, complicating rescuer’s access to the cockpit of the plane.

One resident said he saw the crash as it was happening. He said it sounded like the engine failed.

“It went like this,” he said as he gestured downward with his hand. “Right until it– it was high. Then I hear it coming out of the motor, ‘Too, too, too.’ Then I heard the motor shut off.”

Video sent to 7News shows the small plane on the runway just before taking off from the airport.

Neighbors in the area heard a big boom in the morning and then came out to learn what happened.

“We happen to hear the noise, and my wife came outside, and when we came outside we saw the plane sticking out, and our son had called and said it was a plane crash. We asked where. He said, ‘Right there, in the street on the side of Plantation,'” said a resident, “so when we looked down the street, you could see the plane sticking out. We don’t know if anybody was actually inside the house or what because they’re not letting anybody by right now.”

Residents of the neighborhood told 7News a mother and son were inside the home but luckily didn’t get hurt.

“I heard the noise, I grabbed the baby and ran out,” said Manyerenuis Moreno, the homeowner, “and when I got out, I saw the plane on top of the roof.”

Six houses in the area were evacuated as a precaution.

Crews are working to remove the plane from the home as authorities begin to investigate what went wrong.

“In regards to why the plane crashed, what happened, that is an investigation that National Transportation Safety Board [NTSB] will be handling,” said Tania Rues, Miramar Police Spokesperson.

According to Florida Power and Light, 35 people are without power because of the crash.

The Federal Aviation Administration released the following statement that read, “The FAA and National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) will investigate … Neither agency identifies people involved in aircraft accidents. After investigators verify the aircraft registration number at the scene, the FAA will release it (usually on the next business day) on this web page.”

The plane has been covered with a tarp and Moreno said she is still waiting for answers as to how long it will take to remove it.

Fire crews have left the home and told 7News the bodies have been removed from the plane.

The plane is said to stay attached to the home until it is released by NTSB.

As of 4:18 p.m., officials have not released the names of the victims of the crash.

Two men who were on board a small plane were killed when it crashed into a house in Miramar Monday, officials.

The plane went down in the 2200 block of Jamaica Drive, not far from North Perry Airport around 11:40 a.m.

Footage showed the plane crashed into the side of the home with its tail in the air.

Miramar Police spokesperson Tania Rues said two men who were on board the plane were killed at the scene. Their identities haven't been released.

No one who was on the ground or in the home was injured, Rues said.

The resident, Manyerenis Moreno, said she was inside her home with her 2-year-old child when she heard the impact on her roof.

“I was in my bedroom with my baby and I just heard a big noise. I thought it was a transformer but I grabbed the baby and ran out and then from outside I saw the airplane on top of my house. It was really scary," Moreno said. "I was born today again. I would have died right there with my baby. I’m glad that we’re alive."

The plane appeared to have hit some power lines and clipped the roof of another home as it went down. Miramar Fire Rescue officials said crews were turning off power to the home and others nearby.

Broward County Aviation officials confirmed the plane took off from North Perry.

Donovan Russell said he witnessed the plane go down in the neighborhood.

“I saw the plane coming from North Perry Airport. Right up until it was high. Then I hear it coming and the motor started putt-putt-putt. Then I hear no more noise and the motor shut off," Russell said. "The next thing I heard was 'boom.'"

Moreno said her home was damaged but she's grateful she's alive.

"Some damage at the house, the roof and my bedroom and the bathroom closet, but physically we’re fine and we went out on time," she said.

Investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board and Federal Aviation Administration will be looking into the crash.

It appears an engine failure may have happened at a low altitude, experts said.

Luca Bencini, an FAA flight instructor, said its never good in any situation to lose power at a low altitude.

"Shortly after takeoff it potentially had an engine problem and there’s very little options of where to put it down when you are low at that point," Bencini said.

Bencini said over the years the airport and the community have merged together.

“When the airport was initially built at least in the case of North Perry back in the 40s, there’s nobody around and since then modernization and we have the issue that there are a lot of houses around the airport,’ Bencini said.
