Ardmore Man Dies in Florida Plane Crash

5-10-05 – The family of Jim Kern is in Florida Tuesday, one day after a small plane he was riding in crashed.

It is not known if Kern was flying the aircraft when it went down in a heavily wooded area near Haines City on Monday.

An anonymous 911 call from an eyewitness tipped off authorities that a plane had crashed. Late Monday evening, crews continued to look for a possible second victim near the crash site.

Kern is from Ardmore and worked at Task Research.
