Over the weekend, a place crash occurred in Jacksonville. The Boeing 737 was planning to land at NAS Jax. During landing, there was an awful storm outside. Ashley Long ’19 and I were sitting in a car at the Target parking lot watching the planes land, waiting for the rain to calm down so we could go inside the store. I got home later and saw on the news that a plane had crashed.

A Boeing 737, a military chartered jet, that was carrying 143 people, landed and then bounced and swerved while the pilot struggled to keep it under control; all while it was storming. The plane ended up skidding off the runway and crashed into the St. John’s River at Naval Air Station Jacksonville. Every human survived the crash.

The most heartbreaking part was that most of the animals did not survive the crash and will be cremated. Another issue that is a result of the crash, is the fuel spill in the St. John’s from the plane. It is a miracle that every human is safe after this horrible plane crash.
