- Authorities find Velocity XL-RG-5 St. Cloud area field
- Man, woman on board taken to hospital; conditions not yet known
- Plane was found upside down, deputies say
Authorities say the plane is a Velocity XL-RG-5. Osceola County deputies responded to the area of Kissimmee Park Road near Lake Tohopekaliga after reports of a crash.
Upon arrival, deputies say the plane was found upside down in a rural area.
There was a man and woman on board, says the FAA. The Sheriff's Office said they were airlifted to Osceola Regional Medical Center from the scene. Their conditions are not yet known.
Osceola County Sheriff’s Office said the terrain of the field made it tough to investigate.
"It’s a very rural area near Lake (Tohopekaliga) ... it does take some time to canvass an area such as this. It’s a rural area with high grass fields and things like that," said Major Jacob Ruiz, a spokesperson for the Sheriff's Office.
The FAA says it will investigate the incident. FAA records also show the plane is an experimental amateur-built plane registered to a man from Virginia.
