At least 3 crew members were killed when a Navy plane crashed in Georgia yesterday during a training flight. Authorities are searching for a fourth person believed to be on board. The plane, which originated in Florida, just missed a house and careened into woods in north Georgia near Morganton, sparking a 15-acre brush fire. The twin-jet T-39N was part of a routine training operation which involves cross-country flights. Investigators are seeking a cause, AP reports.
