Keith Berry, a photographer who reported the incident, said the accident “happened very quickly.”
“It crashed… and I don’t know if it was just a hard landing, but it exploded and caught fire,” Berry told Fox 5 Atlanta.
“The plane just landed and landed a little farther, and when it did, it flew to the side,” he added.
