As I drove home yesterday afternoon at 1530, I head from 1010WINS radio there is a large airplane crushed at Ft. Lauderdale area in Florida. The news was original reported from a local TV station down there with no further information. This was repeal broadcast until 1620. I was following this all night and find no clue. Is anyone heard the same story?

It was a DC-3 cargo flight en route to the Bahamas. Crashed shortly after takeoff from Ft Lauderdale. All 3 on board survived, hospitalized but awake & alert. Copilot told firefighters a fuel line broke & one engine was in flames before the crash.

Is this one of the first crashes at FLL ever?

No, in fact, I think they just had another incident a few months ago I think. A Convair or something.

It departed from FXE, not FLL for what it's worth....
