Emergency crews from Huntsville and surrounding areas responded to the airport.

    If the plane is registered at Redstone Arsenal Flying Activity, it is based at Redstone Airfield. Why was it attempting to land at HSV International when Redstone Airfield is only a few miles to the east? IMHO – pilot error.
