HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAAY) - At least one of the occupants of the plane that crashed last night at Huntsville International Airport was a member of Redstone Arsenal’s Flying Activity. The Activity is a recreational club that has 13 small airplanes that can be rented by members. Garrison Commander Colonel Bill Marks says a pilot who is a member of the club rented the Cessna Skyhawk for a trip. That person and a passenger were approaching Huntsville International Monday night, returning from Enterprise Alabama, when the plane reportedly lost power just short of the runway. The pilot attempted to land the plane but it flipped and landed on its top. Colonel Marks says right now they do not know what caused the power failure.  "The accident is under investigation and we are fully committed to ensure that the investigators have everything that they could possibly have to get down to the root cause,” he said after the Chamber of Commerce’s Redstone Update, “and we are so relieved that the pilot and the passenger walked away from it."
Hemsi responded but both people refused to be transported to the hospital.
