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.
