At Least 3 Dead In Navy Plane Crash Near NC-Ga. Border

Navy investigators are expected to arrive Tuesday in north Georgia at the scene of a Navy plane that crashed in dense woods, killing at least three crew members.

Officials say the Florida-based plane just missed a house when it crashed Monday and authorities were looking for a fourth person believed to be aboard.

Naval Air Station Pensacola spokesman Harry White said authorities had not confirmed whether the pilot was among those killed when a T-39N Sabreliner training plane went down. He says no one on the ground was injured.

White says the plane was part of Training Air Wing 6, which conducts routine cross-country missions through Fannin County, where it crashed, about two hours north of Atlanta, on the edge of the North Carolina and Tennessee borders.

    Really, buy a map and study it up before making a post like that. You'll save yourself from sounding really, really dumb.

    In response to post by "Really?"...I would check the map again...there is a portion of NC that is bordered by GA and TN...take another look! Is that really all you got from this news report?? Some US sailors lost their lives and families are grieving. I'm just saying...
