Israeli among 3 killed in Monday light plane crash in Florida

An Israeli was killed Monday in a light plane crash in Florida on Monday, it has been revealed.

The plane belonged to Yaacov Nahom, a 63-year-old businessman. He and his technician crashed shortly after takeoff, hitting a car with a woman and her four-year-old child.

Only the woman survived.

The Beechcraft Bonanza aircraft had apparently experienced technical issues prior to the flight, which were thought to have been fixed. Both men in the plane were registered pilots, and it’s not yet clear who was flying.
