Small plane crashes into building on Fort Lauderdale beach

A pilot died Friday when a banner-towing plane crashed into a building along the beach in Fort Lauderdale.

The crash happened near the beach just south of Oakland Park Boulevard and just west of A1A.

It was about 11:50 a.m. when calls came that a small plane had crashed into an 18-story condominium building at 3015 N. Ocean Blvd., Fort Lauderdale Battalion Chief Stephan Gollan said.

The plane then tumbled to the building’s pool deck several floors below.
