Emergency crews are still on scene. Deputies were securing the wreckage until officials with the FAA could arrive.

The Linn County Sheriff’s Office told FOX 12 that it received reports of the plane flying low, but the callers did not report signs of mechanical issues.

Investigators are not yet sure what if any role the high winds played in this crash.

Marty Nill, who operates a private airfield near Harrisburg with his brother, told the Associated Press in a phone interview that conditions were very windy. However, investigators are not yet sure what role the high winds played in the crash, if any.

Charles Davis of Ventura, California, and his wife heard the plane before the crash, The Oregonian reports.

“I heard the plane flying low and then it wasn’t too long after that, maybe seven or eight minutes, and we started hearing sirens,” said Davis, 67, who is staying in their Winnebago at the Life Northwest RV park near Harrisburg.

“He’s putting a lot of power in an airplane and he’s low,” Davis said he recalls thinking. “So why’s he doing that? And the wind, it was just horrible right then.”

Our hearts and prayers go out to all involved.
