Megan Adams -- bystander

23:46:48 It was just interesting, not something you're going to see everyday 23:46:53

NATS -- boat engine

After sitting submerged in the waters off North Captiva Island for close to two days. the small plane that slammed into the sea while attempting to land on Wednesday. slowly made its way back to dry land.

Kellen Calale -- bystander

23:51:31 It was interesting to watch it. It was kind of sad knowing the outcome of it. 23:51:42

After pulling the plane from the water. a somber procession of Coast Guard and Sea Tow boats began their hours-long trek to a dock in Boaca Grande. attracting many spectators along the way.

Kellen Calale --bystander

23:52:38 Everything looked to be intact, from what I could see. 23:52:42

Linda Watson -- bystander

23:54:35 Its very bittersweet, and thats the reason we were sitting, watching.

For some it was too emotional to watch.

Linda Watson -- bystander

23:54:41 It just brings back memories of Valentine's Day a year ago, when we lost three very good friends in the same type of accident. 23:54:47

Nats -- boat engine/water

After getting the plane ashore. crews drained the engine of any fuel.

Nats -- saws cutting

The one remaining wing -- sawed off. allowing the plane to be hoisted onto a trailer. which then drove it to a secured location just outside of Orlando. That's where investigators from the NTSB will take the plane apart. to find out what caused it to take that tragic dive into the sea.

Megan Adams -- bystander

23:46:04 Its sad, we are very sad for their loss, but its always interesting to see things like this and how they handled it 23:46:12

A process those watching hope will soon lead to answers.

FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

WARM TEMPS TO DOMINATE THE WEEKEND

Warm temperatures and reduced coverage of rain on Saturday highlight the upcoming weekend forecast across Southwest Florida.

On Saturday, a wedge of somewhat drier air will continue to be over the Florida peninsula, cutting back on the coverage of rain across the state. Though an isolated shower or thunderstorm will be remain possible, it appears most backyards in the region will trend to stay on the dry side through Saturday afternoon.

Though the coverage of rain will be below what's seasonal for July in Southwest Florida tomorrow, temperatures will be warmer than what's typical for this time of year. The average high temperature at Fort Myers is 92 degrees for this time of year. On Saturday though, temps at their warmest are expected to be closer to the mid 90s, with expected highs approaching 94 degrees at Fort Myers.

Inland areas of the state could see afternoon temps approach the mid to upper 90s just after lunchtime on Saturday.

On Sunday, we will have a more favorable weather setup to allow conditions yielding late afternoon and early evening sea breeze induced showers and storms. Highs should continue to top out just warmer than average, with temps near 93 degrees.

For the upcoming work week, showers and thunderstorms look likely in the afternoon for Monday and Tuesday. Temperatures should max out in the low to mid 90s in the afternoon.

TROPICAL UPDATE

Tropical weather conditions are generally quiet across the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico. There are no tropical features in play at this time, and no organization of any tropical activity is expected through the course of the next three to five days. Return to index of stories...
