Plane hits a cayman on landing at a Florida airport

A pilot landing at Orlando’s Executive Airport in central Florida was shocked when a large alligator jumped onto the runway and jumped and crashed into one wing of the aircraft, a local media reported.

The pilot of the airplane, Bard Pierce, uploaded to his Facebook account a picture of a caiman of about 11 feet (3.35 meters) lifeless, supposedly after the plane that was piloting was carried in front of the reptile Landing, picked up News 6 channel.

“The alligator jumped and crashed with one wing at the landing,” he said. The alligator died instantly and the device suffered damage to one wing, said the pilot of the twin-engine plane in the social network.

The photo of Pierce was shared through Facebook more than two thousand times.

The last time it was known that an airplane in Florida crashed into a cayman was in 2013 at the Southwest Florida International Airport in the city of Fort Myers on the west coast.

According to the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA), four similar cases of airplanes impacting alligators have been reported at Orlando’s executive airport since 1998.
