According to the NYDailyNews.com, a movie shoot’s grand finale turned fatal after two people were killed in a plane crash in Summerfield, Florida. Authorities said a single-engine plane plunged nose-first in a Summerfield airfield on April 6, killing the pilot and his passenger, who were both involved in shooting the science-fiction thriller, “What Tomorrow Brings”.
Witnesses told Marion County Sheriff’s deputies that the victims, the 70-year-old pilot and his 65-year-old passenger, were filming inside the Vans RV-7 single-engine aircraft around 8 p.m. when it appeared to stall in midair. Authorities said the passenger, the lead cinematographer for the movie, was filming the pilot when the plane stalled, just after completing a banking turn maneuver over the set.
The Federal Aviation Administration is currently investigating the crash.
