Todd PittengerMarch 9, 2020

Two Kansas men and their dog survived a plane crash in Florida.

According to the Okaloosa County, Florida, Sheriff’s Office, a pilot and passenger aboard a Beech Bonanza aircraft which down short of the Destin Executive Airport runway Sunday morning are identified as a father and son from Kansas who were flying into the Destin area for vacation.

47-year old Jason Dougherty of Garden City and 22-year old Caleb Dougherty of Salina, as well as a Labrador retriever flying with them, somehow survived without a scratch after just missing a home and landing in a tree in the area of Main Street and Planet Drive around 10 a.m.

They say the plane began experiencing engine trouble as they were coming into land.

The National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the accident.
