October 14, 2015 - On Tuesday, a Piper Archer
aircraft, PA-28-180, N57312, had departed
in Orlando for
County Park Airport
Palm Beach, Florida with only its pilot onboard.
While on approach for Palm Beach County
at about 5:30 PM the pilot who has been
identified as 64 year old Dan Shalloway
encountered an aircraft
stall which resulted in the Piper Archer
aircraft crashing into a mobile home just north
of the airport.
Upon impact the Piper Archer burst into a ball
of fire. Inside the mobile home was 20 year old
Banny Gallecia who died as a result of the fire.
Her father indicated his daughter was sleeping
inside the mobile home. He said he tried to save
her but the flames and heat were too intense.
