>> whether this has any connection, we do not know. we'ree trying to get a as much information from our crews on the ground, in the air, tampa fire and rescue and tampas me. we have been told that tamampa police will be briefing us at 12:20. it's 12:21 now so we're a little behind fromm tampa police as they're trying to come out and tell t the news media exactly what has happened here. so we're getting information that you see from the air, and a little this teterms of what was involvedd in
we do know that there were two aircrafaft involved. one aircraft remains on the runway there in a grassy area. it's charred from the fire that occurred following this plane. as we wait for a briefing, i'm not sure if we can did back to paul or try peter again. >> hello, things are prettyy much the same up here. the fire crews aren't actively attacking this plane anymore. it look like it's pretty much out. they're
investigators to come out. they got it out pretty quickly. >> again we don't know if anyone died in this, it anyone was hurt or injured. i don't know if you were able to see an ambulance or anything leaving the airport grounds. >> no, i didn't see anything leaving. i saw -- i had to pull over about three times for emergency crews to get b back me, firefighters and police. but i didn't see anything leaving. and i never saw an active ambulance. >> trying to find out what happened, how many people may have been on this aircraft, whether they were injured, taken out by ambulance.
on this police briefing which will enlighten us a great degree in terms of what happened. we do know this happened roughly about 35, almost 40 minutes ago that this incident occurred at the airport. and two aircraft were involved. we can only see the remains of one aircraft. there were flames and we could see a lot of smoke coming from this. it was shot off in the distance, as well as some video shot from the water near the airport. clearly a fire rescue boat thahat was trying to pour water from the shoreline onto what was left of that aircraft. we're waiting and trying to find out as much
the news conference from tampa police was supposed to start at 12:20. obviously they're a little behind . peter o. excite airports a small -- o. knight airports a small airport where fairly small aircraft take off from. this is close to mcgill air force base and also to tampa international. so there's no doubt a lot of flight patterns that have been adjusted for the air show this weekend.
beenen familiar with the changing pattttern that occurred with all of these aircrafts coming out of the air force base. we just don't know the particulars. and the aircraft looks like it happened at very end of the runway. and we're waiting on this news briefing from tampa police which was supposed to happen five, six minutes ago. we're still trying to find out as much asas we can, fromm the ground and air, and we have several crews on their way there. no traffic, no air traffic is coming in or out of that airport for obvious reasons.
paul is just a little way from where this crash occurred. >> it's right next to where i'm standing. yes, i'm here. >> go ahead. cann you hear me? >> yeah, okay. i was talking to our mechanicc and he told me t that the line guys came and got him. they didn't hear anything in the hangar. they came in looking for a fiber extinguisher because the -- fire extinguisher. the plane was fully engulfed. they were told it was a twin cessna that was on fire. and they don't know if it was takeoff o or landing. but a twin cessna is the initial report from here. where i'm standing is a couple hundred yayards away. inside the hangar, they didn't hear anything. they were out with the helicopter and heard nothing of a crash, suppose, anything. -- explosion, anything.
they saw the flames and they were greeted by the line people trying to get a second or third fire e extinguisher to put this fire out. right nowow the fire is out and all the runways are closed here at peeve -- peter o. knight. kind of south of downtown. right on garrisonn channel. there's still activity out there, but i can't get any information because they're what we're initially being told, it was a twin cessna, that could change.
let you know, you said that the mechanic did not hear an explosion, which certainly leaves the questioion of what could have happened here. >> right. they heard nothing. they're in the hangar, which is very close close to where the accident happened. and so they heard nothing. they came out and then they were able to see the smoke. and our pilot was also out there as well. something that happened suddenlnly. and there's no information of what happened right now. so tampa police will hopefully brief us.
tampa fire and rescue holding this news conference, any moment now. so we're waiting to hear from them in terms of the latest information they can share with us and that we can share with you in terms of what led to this plane crash we can see the charred remains of that aircraft off the runway there. the charred grass, remains of the aircraft. tail section i is basically all you can make out. we d do not know how many people were on board. we d don't know if ananyone lost their lives in this particular a aircraft crash. you can see on the left side of the screen, all the news crews are
quite a ways out. fairly close to the end of the runway. it's runway 18. and the fire crews are packing up their hoses now, just waiting for investigators to get out here. >> obviouslyly they put out the fire, controlled that part of the situation. you certainly would want to open that they were able to do whatever they could do to get whoever was on that aircraft out of there into the emergency room. we're not able to get all the information,
conference from tampa fire rescue. what happened, what led to this, did it have anything to do with a change. flight patterns in and out of mcgill which also changed the flight patterns in and out of peter o. knight airport because of the air test going on this weekend. we don't know a whole lot of information. we were told this was possibly a twin cessna aircraft that crashed. the tail
see of what was left. i understand we're gonna go back to paul on the ground. >> reporter: there's not much. this is downtown tampa. and here's peter o. knight. you can see the runway goes this way and down at the very end of the runway on the east side of the runway is where the crash happened. and right now they have all traffic in and out. >> p paul i'm gonna have to cut you off. steve hagerty is with

currently the airports closed. we have a simple release on our twitter. whenever there's an update about the airfield opening up, we'll put that out. >> there should be more information coming in about that. >> and you're not looking for another flight? >> can't say that, no. >> a twin engine cessna 310, take off somehow caught fire. that's all we know. and two people dead. was there a crash or it just caught fire?
