Dashcam video shows final moments of crashed plane


CHAMBLEE, GA (WXIA) – Dash cam video from a Chamblee Police cruiser was released late Friday which showed what are likely the final images of the plane that crashed on Interstate 285 at Peachtree Industrial Boulevard earlier this month.

In the video, the plane can be seen flying low across the view as the police cruiser is facing northward along Peachtree Industrial at a stop light. The plane disappears from view, followed by a plume of thick, black smoke as it crashes on the Perimeter.

The cruiser speeds toward the crash and up the wrong way on the cloverleaf off-ramp onto the interstate, where the flaming wreckage was.

Four people – Greg Byrd, his two sons, Phillip and Christopher, along with Christopher's fiancée Jackie Kulzer – perished when the single-engine Piper PA-32 aircraft crashed shortly after take-off from DeKalb-Peachtree Airport on May 8.

Pilots saddened by crash, confident in investigation


ATLANTA -- After more than 20 years of flying, hearing about another pilot and his passengers losing their lives is tough for Jonathan Sweatman.

"It saddens us all. Flying is a close knit community and we are immediately concerned when something happens like this," he said.

Sweatman learned how to fly at DeKalb-Peachtree Airport (PDK). He calls it organized and supportive of pilots.

While the landscape has changed over the years - with more people and businesses surrounding the land - he said he and other pilots go through extensive training before taking to the skies.

He said they rely on that training and experience in unfamiliar surroundings or if they run into trouble.
