09/21/07 81 W - + 15 - 15 Clayton Plane Crash


WRAL has a good slideshow of on-ground scene pics from Clayton. That's Johnston County's foam unit right in front of the building. It's stationed in Selma. Incident time about 10:15 a.m. Single-engine aircraft into McCall's BBQ & Seafood Restaurant at 10365 Highway 70. One fatality, believed pilot. Minor injuries on ground. Mutual aid from Selma, Smithfield, and Garner. NC USAR Task Force 8 dispatched. Raleigh sent USAR 1, USAR 2, Rescue 7, and Car 5. Other coverage: WRAL main story, News & Observer, and WMPM radio news.



When I went through there about 1500, there was a CFD rescue unit leaving and a DFD engine leaving, but I did not catch the numbers.

The DFD Engine as E-16, they are the main USAR truck for the city.

Went to Clayton yesterday to take pics of the McCalls plane crash site. Their site safety officer told me if it had been an hour later all of Clayton Fire Dept would have been inside eating themselves. He said it was payday and Special Seafood Friday and that is the normal that always send them their for lunch. Not only were civilians lucky but our own.

Notice the last 10-15 pics and what it did to the far side wall from where the impact was.

It might have been a mistake in the editing but down here in Charlotte there was a shot of the crash and I swear I saw
Raleigh Ladder 1 on scene. Can anyone confirm this?

Yeah, Raleigh was dispatched to send some US&R members there.
