Baltimore couple killed in Florida plane crash

'Several deaths' in plane crash near Tampa, officials say

The charred remains of a Cessna 340 twin-engine aircraft sat north of a runway December 24, 2017, at Bartow (Fla.) Municipal Airport.

Victoria and her husband Peter Worthington both died in the crash.

More details on the deadly plane crash in Florida on Sunday morning were released by officials.

A school teacher in Baltimore, 26-year-old Victoria Shannon Worthington had just arrived in town the night prior from Maryland to celebrate Christmas with the family.

A fire engulfed the plane after it crashed; everyone on board died. "It's a tragedy of monumental proportions when it happens on Christmas Eve".

Dick Enberg, legendary sportscaster, dies at 82
He called UCLA Bruins basketball games during their string of NCAA titles in the '60s and '70s, led by Coach John Wooden. Enberg broadcast nine no-hitters, including two by San Francisco's Tim Lincecum against the Padres in 2013 and 2014.

But shortly after taking off in dense fog near Tampa, the pilot, John H. Shannon, 70, and four others - including two of his daughters - were killed in a crash, the authorities said.

Horstman said Shannon had filed a flight plan to fly Sunday from Bartow to Key West.

John Shannon had been planning to take the trip from Lakeland, Florida, where he lived, to the Florida Keys with his daughters for the holidays, said John Liguori, a friend.

Judd spoke highly of Shannon, who was well-known in the Lakeland area as being active in his community.

Victoria Worthington and her husband arrived on Friday from Baltimore, where they lived. Victoria was a school teacher in Baltimore, Maryland, and Peter was a law student at the University of Maryland, Judd said.

Trump slams Federal Bureau of Investigation deputy, who reportedly plans to retire
Earlier this week, McCabe gave a confidential and closed-door testimony before the House Intelligence Committee. Republicans in Congress have criticized McCabe and accused him of harboring bias against Trump.

On his website, Shannon said he began practising law in 1975, and had focused on "personal injury and death" cases.

Shannon was making a 45- to 60-minute flight for day trip to the Florida Keys, the sheriff said. The Republican ran for state representative in 2014, but lost in the primary to Colleen Burton, who still holds the office. The sheriff - at times becoming emotional while speaking of his friend - said he was told Shannon brought cookies for the Bartow airport staff.

The National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration will investigate the cause of the crash.

"He said, 'I couldn't believe that they were taking off in this fog, ' " the sheriff said. But Judd said it appeared that fog could have been a factor in the accident.
