  • Baltimore couple killed in Florida plane crash

Shannon's two daughters Olivia, 24, and Victoria, 26, both died, as well as Victoria's husband Peter Worthington and their 32-year-old family friend Krista Clayton.

The group was flying to Key West where they planned to spend the day, Judd said.

According to an airport official, a plane went down and caught fire.

The plane was already engulfed in flames by the time fire rescue crews arrived on Sunday morning.

"You can hear the engine as it revved up and as the plane took off, and there's not one sign of the aircraft that was obviously soaked in a very dense, very heavy fog".

"For unknown reasons, but likely related to the fog, it crashed shortly after takeoff", the statement read.


"There are several deaths", the statement said.

The names of the victims were not released, pending notification of next of kin.

Bartow is about 50 miles southwest of Orlando.

Also killed in the crash was Victoria's father, 70-year-old John Shannon, a Lakeland, Florida, attorney who was piloting the plane.

The twin-engine plane came down at the end of a runway at the Bartow Municipal Airport.

All five were killed on impact or immediately after, Polk County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Carrie E. Horstman said.
