Man in critical condition after plane crash

The pilot of the experimental aircraft was Donald Gaynor from Englewood and was found dead at the scene.

Passenger Jeff Kramer was flown to a nearby hospital and is expected to survive.

It happened in South Sarasota County.

Authorities say the single engine plane crashed in a wooded area.

Emergency crews arrived minutes after the plane went down, thanks to many witnesses calling the crash in from a nearby festival.

According to witnesses the plane was doing aerobatics before nose-diving and crashing to the ground.

The cause of the crash remains under FAA investigation.
