Moments ago Breaking News ABC KNXV LIVE in Phoenix interrupted normal programing to report a plane crash in the Superstition Mountains , and witnesses from the Phoenix Mesa Gateway Airport said “the plane and split in two mid-air” .
FAA will not confirm it is a plane crash at this time! The State of Arizona has called every agency out to the scene. Witnesses can see the fire burning, and a DPS helicopter has landed near the crash site moments ago. Local News stations cannot confirm if it is a plane, where it came from or where it was going, and some witnesses are claiming the possibility of the craft being a ” private Lear Jet”. Superstition Mountain is a steep upgrade and rugged terrain., making rescue extremely difficult.
One witness reported that ” a giant orb, meteor type ball of flame literally fell out of the sky”. Another witness claimed he heard a noise “that didn’t sound right” , which caused him to look out of his home into the night sky. He then reported that “The giant firey orb came crashing to the ground in a ball of flames”.
Weather at the time of the crash was mild, no wind, and nothing unusual. ABC News is asking why it is taking so long for authorities such as the FAA to confirm whether the crash was a commercial airline, private plane or otherwise. The answer that ABC received was “It just takes time”.
Again, this is all the information that we have at this time. We will report more as the story unfolds.
