Football Fans Survive Crash Landing, Go On To Game

[1]SELMA, Ala. (AP) — A crash landing in a small airplane wasn’t enough to keep four fans away from the football game between Alabama and Ole Miss in Tuscaloosa.

A plane bound for Tuscaloosa from Mobile went down in a cotton field near Selma on Saturday, but none of the four men on board was injured. So they made it to Montgomery by vehicle and rented a car for the rest of the trip to the game.

One of the men on the plane, construction executive John White-Spunner, tells WPMI-TV (http://bit.ly/PJE1qJ ) he and his traveling companions thought they were going to die.

Pilot George Arnold says the men got in a circle and prayed after making it out of the aircraft alive.

The aircraft hit trees and was leaking fuel after it went down.
