The passengers were said to have boarded the small plane on Tuesday afternoon US time, and the plane reportedly crashed into a barrier and burst into flames during take-off, before reaching the end of the runway. Nathaniel Joseph Menora was able to jump out of the plane just prior to the explosion.
