Crash caused by turbulence

August 19, 2004

A plane crash in South Georgia that killed two Tennessee men was caused by severe turbulence.

In March of 2003, the men were flying to Titusville, Florida when their plane crashed in Arabia Bay in Clinch County.

The National Transportation Safety Board says a distress call was made to Jacksonville and within seconds, the plane accelerated from 200 to 345 miles per hour. The wings and tail of the plane broke off in mid-air.
