The Beech Bonanza aircraft, which is a six-seater, single-engine model plane, crashed around 10 a.m. just short of the runway at the Destin Executive Airport, according to the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office. While coming in for a landing, the small plane experienced engine trouble and just missed a house before careening into a tree near Main Street.

The two men, along with their Labrador retriever, “somehow survived without a scratch,” the sheriff’s office said in a Facebook post. They were the only people aboard the aircraft. Jason Dougherty, 47, and his son Caleb Dougherty, 22, both from Kansas, were flying to Florida for vacation.
