SELMA, Ala. — 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 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.
