Three people are OK after a small aircraft crashed at the Kissimmee Gateway Airport on Saturday, officials confirmed. The Cessna 172 aircraft was performing a touch-and-go maneuver around 1 p.m. when it crashed and ended up on Runway 15. Touch-and-go maneuvers are typical when learning to fly an aircraft.
Officials said there were three people on the plane at the time, an instructor and two students, and all three were able to exit the plane and were uninjured.
The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the crash.
