Horrifying new footage shows the moment private jet smashes on to Florida highway before wiping out traffic – killing two pilots but saving three on board

Shocking new footage shows the moment a plane crashed on I-75 in Florida – killing two people.

The video shows the private jet piloted by 50-year-old Edward Daniel Murphy and second-in-command Ian Frederick Hofmann, 65, crashing when its engines failed.

The two pilots died on impact, but thanks to their ability to guide the Bombardier Challenger 60 on the crowded highway, three others on board survived.

New video out of Florida shows Friday's plane crash in Naples — a harrowing view offered by an eagle-eyed motorist on I-75.

Video shows the plane hitting a car as it came down, before bursting into flames as it crashed into a highway median. Further footage showed the u survivors fleeing as flames engulfed them.

A massive plume of smoke ensued, after which Feds were called to the scene to investigate the wreckage. They went on to reveal the jet was just minutes away from safety – in this case the runway at Naples airport just a few kilometers away.

The driver, identified by DailyMail.com as Miami truck driver Alfonso Del Nodal, was one of several drivers who captured the makeshift landing on the temporary airstrip.

“Last minute,” he wrote in a caption to one of two clips showing the crash posted on his Facebook, two days after the accident happened.

Other footage – including video captured by passing motorist Kyle Cavaliere – shows the massive plumes of smoke rising from the wreckage moments after the plane went down.

“It landed on a car too,” Cavaliere exclaimed as he approached the scene and steered his car closer to the large flames that could be seen as debris strewn across the road.

The plane was reportedly traveling from Columbus, Ohio, to the airport in Naples, with Feds since identifying everyone on board.

Crew member Sydney Ann Bosmans, 23, along with passengers Aaron Baker, 35, and Audra Green, 23, narrowly escaped with their lives and were filmed fleeing the fiery inferno after it crashed on Friday.

Officers on the ground further explained that Murphy, a veteran pilot, was from Oakland Park, Florida and that Hofmann was from Pompano Beach, Florida.

The National Transport Safety Board (NTSB) is handling the investigation.

Other footage showed the three survivors – two passengers and a crew member – running away from the burning jet.

“Is there anyone else in there?” asked flight attendant Cavaliere as he ran to help.

“Yes, yes our pilots!” one of the survivors shouted back. Caveliere then asks if they are alive and the woman replies she doesn’t know.

The angry survivors then start asking to use his phone as the clip ends.

NTSB officials later said the pilots — who both have years of flight experience — reported dual engine failures shortly before the crash in a panicked call to air traffic control.

Audio of that emergency correspondence has since been released, capturing either panicked voices or a malfunctioning plane — though it’s hard to tell.

Feds went on to add that the plane was just a minute away from making an emergency landing at Naples — while another moment of audio revealed that Murphy knew they wouldn’t make it.

FlightAware data initially showed the plane traveling from The Ohio State University Airport, prompting the college to issue a statement stating that the plane was merely using its facilities and not a connection to the university himself did not.

The plane actually belonged to Hop-a-Jet, a private charter company in Florida, where Bosmans and the two pilots all worked.

The private plane crashed into cars on a major highway, causing a massive explosion and killing two of the five people on board.

After the crash, the company said it had “received confirmed reports of an accident involving one of our leased aircraft near Naples” and promised to send a team to the crash site.

“Our immediate concern is for the well-being of our passengers, crew members and their families,” it said of that decision.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), meanwhile, was forced to close all southbound lanes on the highly trafficked road for a full 24 hours as it investigated the crash.

A preliminary report from the agency – which is tasked with overseeing air traffic for the entire country – will be written within 30 days, it said.

As for the three survivors — two of whom were confirmed to be passengers from Columbus, Ohio — they were taken to an area hospital to be treated for their injuries, the Collier County Sheriff’s Office said.
