News is describing it as a "small, silver, vintage airplane."

Which is about as accurate as you can expect the pencil jockeys to be, honestly.

There's quite a few aircraft here at the aiport that fit that description.

If the Herald has the tail number correct, I've seen that airplane around quite a bit. I used to be at OPF quite often. My old employer had airplanes parked there in medium-term storage, and we cannibalized the hell out of them.

yeah... While it would be good if everyone is ok, departure crashes into buildings usually don't yield survivors.  I hope it was quick and painless.

Did your old employer happen to run 3 engine cargo jets painted green and white?  If so, I can see several of them from my window.....lacking parts

Ours were blue and white, and said "Gemini Air Cargo" on the side of the fuselage. Otherwise accurate.
