A twin engine plane crashed in a field in DeLand

(Never did hear any audio from the plane, so what you will hear is another airport community come together as they searched and found the downed aircraft,
injured, but alive after it was located.)

A twin-engine plane crashed in DeLand Thursday afternoon in a field off Eidson Drive near State Road 11 at around 2:20 p.m., seriously injuring the 72-year-old male pilot, who was taken to the hospital as a trauma alert, according to authorities.

No one else was on board, according to the Federal Aviation Administration, which will investigate the accident along with the National Transportation Safety Board. The plane crashed very near the DeLand Municipal Airport.

Where did the DeLand plane crash happen?
"It looks like it's some kind of cow pasture," Vicki Karr, public safety spokeswoman for the city of DeLand said of where the crippled airplane ended up.
The FAA identified the craft as a twin-engine Admore Aircam. According to a company website, the "AirCam is a twin-engine open cockpit experimental amateur-built aircraft designed and engineered with safety, visibility, and versatility in mind."
