The flight was gone to Daytona Beach, Florida, he said.

Wing falls into home
The wing of the plane fell into the room of a manufactured house close to the accident scene as the family living there had their supper, said Gainesville Fire Division Chief Keith Smith at a news meeting.
“The tenants of the trailer were really eating when the wing got through their rooftop and arrived in one of the rooms,” Smith said. “Fortunately, nobody was in the room at that point.”
An emergency call came in soon after 6 p.m. from a bystander who saw trash on the street and saw more plane garbage when they investigated the lush region across the road, as indicated by Smith.
The flotsam and jetsam field stretches out about a quarter to a half-mile, Brackett told CNN in an email. Brackett said that five individuals were dislodged in the episode because of fuel falling on their home yet were not harmed.
The Hall County Sheriff’s Office is dealing with the demise examination, Brackett said. CNN has contacted the Sheriff’s Office for more data.
Both the FAA and National Transportation Safety Board will research the accident, Duncan said.
